Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder affects about 8 million people in the United States, including many in the military, and while the mental health condition cannot be cured, it can be managed. On The Sound of Ideas, we'll talk about the role Cleveland played in helping diagnose and treat PTSD thanks in part to research done in the 70s and 80s on Vietnam veterans. Then, we'll hear about efforts in Akron to attract and retain talent by giving them a personalized tour of the Rubber City. Join us.
