Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is a formidable opponent. Tamar Rodney believes the key to beating PTSD is acting quickly to identify the syndrome and giving the science time to catch up. Dr. Rodney is a board-certified psychiatric nurse practitioner who has worked in trauma and psychiatry. Her PhD research looked at biomarkers for PTSD in veterans with a traumatic brain injury. Her career goal is to change the way health care professionals approach diagnosis and treatment planning for individuals with mental health needs.
