The Commander Lura Jane Emery Lecture
Caring for Those Who Served: Understanding and Addressing Veterans’ Unique Health Care Needs
Monday, May 9, 2022
4 - 5:30 p.m.
Most veterans do not seek care in Veterans Administration facilities. Therefore, it is imperative that civilian health care professionals understand the unique health care needs related to military service members’ and veterans’ military duties and deployments. This lecture will explore those unique needs and will discuss health care issues related to homeless veterans, with a focus on homeless female veterans, providing recommendations for practice, education, research, and policy.
