CereScan Corp. provides expert insight on PTSD to documentary filmmaker Steffan Tubbs for his November 11 world premier of “ACRONYM: The Cross-Generational Battle With PTSD”

CereScan Corp. lends its support to Steffan Tubbs, a noted documentary filmmaker, author, and Denver media personality, as he shines a spotlight on U. S. military veterans who struggle with the long term effects of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), and chronic Traumatic Brain Injury (mTBI) issues. “ACRONYM: The Cross-Generational Battle With PTSD”, premiers on November 11, 2015 (Veteran’s Day), in Littleton, CO, and introduces viewers to veterans of war, ranging from WWII through Afghanistan, who have suffered the effects of PTSD. The film provides an incredibly personal glimpse into veterans’ backgrounds and lives, and the events that led up to their diagnoses. Mr. Tubbs enlists experts, such as CereScan, to explain the causes and symptoms of PTSD, and gives reason for hope by presenting various treatment options through traditional and non-traditional methods.

“Anytime we have the opportunity to bring awareness to our service men and women that there may be hope for them to recover from their brain disorders we are clearly going to be onboard,” said John Kelley, Chairman and CEO of CereScan Corp. “The fact that we are able team up to help veterans and educate the general populace through the work we are doing on signature wounds of war, like PTSD, makes our support of the Acronym project that much more important.”

Steffan Tubbs, the film’s Executive Producer and Director, has firsthand knowledge of the devastating impact of PTSD, which he experienced after covering the Oklahoma City bombing on April 19-24, 1995. He reports that he received counseling and treatment for the disorder. He has long been an advocate of our nation’s military veterans, shining the spotlight on their issues and promoting their causes. "I know veterans who learn about the research and commitment that companies like CereScan are providing will feel not only a sense of relief, but a sense of hope. As a filmmaker, it was a blessing to be able to include CereScan within this incredibly important documentary," Mr. Tubbs offered as comment to CereScan Corp’s involvement in the project.
