Helene Moriarty, PhD, RN, FAAN is Professor, Diane & Robert Moritz, Jr. Endowed Chair in Nursing Research at the Villanova University M. Louise Fitzpatrick College of Nursing and Nurse Scientist at the Corporal Michael J. Crescenz Veterans Affairs (VA) Medical Center. She is also a member of the NewCourtland Center for Transitions and Health, a research center at the University of Pennsylvania School of Nursing. She served on the NASEM committee that created the report, "Accelerating Progress in Traumatic Brain Injury Research and Care." Dr. Moriarty’s research has led to novel insights and healthcare approaches for veterans with traumatic brain injury (TBI) and their families. This research is one of the first scientific efforts to engage family members as integral partners in the care of veterans with TBI and also address the health of family caregivers. Her completed NIH-funded randomized controlled trial evaluated the impact of an innovative rehabilitation intervention, the Veterans’ In-home Program (VIP), for veterans with TBI and their families. Building on the VIP, Dr. Moriarty’s current NIH-funded research tests a rehabilitation approach that addresses critical gaps in services and research for civilians and veterans with chronic TBI symptoms and their families. Dr. Moriarty has held many leadership roles within the VA health system and serves as a member of the American Academy of Nursing’s Expert Panel on Military and Veterans Health. In 2019, she was appointed to the VA Nursing Research Field Advisory Committee charged with developing and implementing the strategic plan for nursing research for the VA health system, and she now serves as Chair-Elect for this committee.
