Even after our soldiers return home, many of them remain in harm's way. More than 300,000 U.S. soldiers and veterans are struggling with traumatic brain injury or post-traumatic stress disorder. Gen. Peter Chiarelli has been a tireless advocate for eliminating the stigma associated with service members and veterans, getting them the help they need to treat the invisible wounds of war. As the new CEO of One Mind for Research, he is now leading an effort to bring together health-care providers, researchers, academics and the health-care industry - on a global scale - to cure brain disorders. In this role, Chiarelli is determined to forge unprecedented collaboration and alignment among global stakeholders in brain research through public-private partnerships. He will sit down for a conversation with CNBC's Maria Bartiromo to talk about his new mission at One Mind for Research - and about what the business community can do to ensure that veterans receive the support they need to reintegrate into their families and the workforce.
