About Project Enlist

Project Enlist is a program of The Concussion Legacy Foundation that was launched in 2018 to serve as a catalyst for TBI, PTSD, and CTE research in the military and veteran community. Since then, nearly 2,000 service members have pledged their brain to Project Enlist to help raise awareness for brain donation in the military community so scientists can learn how to better diagnose and treat TBI, PTSD, and CTE.
