TriWest Contributes $50,000 to Bob Woodruff Family Fund for Traumatic Brain Injury
Date:11/6/2007

PHOENIX, Nov. 6 /PRNewswire/ -- To help raise awareness about the prevalence of Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) among Service members injured while serving our country, TriWest Healthcare Alliance has contributed $50,000 to the Bob Woodruff Family Fund (BWFF) for TBI.

"According to the Department of Defense, current reports suggest that sixty percent of the service members sustaining injuries in the Global War on Terror have been impacted by blasts," said TriWest President and CEO David McIntyre, Jr. "Our contribution to the Bob Woodruff Family Fund is one way in which we are contributing to the focus of this critical topic."

TriWest will present the check to the BWFF at the "Stand Up for Heroes" charity concert for wounded military members headlined by Bruce Springsteen, Robin Williams and Conan O'Brien in New York City on Nov. 7, 2007.

The contribution will help fund programs aimed at TBI prevention, diagnosis, treatment, support and resources for the injured. It will also assist veterans and their families who are suffering from the impact of TBI and post-deployment symptoms of combat stress.

The BWFF is named for the former co-anchor of ABC's "World News Tonight" who was severely injured in a roadside explosion in January 2006 while reporting on the war in Iraq. Woodruff spent five weeks in a medically-induced coma before enduring months of rehabilitation. For more information about Woodruff and the fund, visit http://www.bobwoodrufffamilyfund.org/.

TriWest has special programs to help Wounded Warriors or those affected with TBI. For more information on the services, visit http://www.triwest.com.
