In August, President Obama announced 19 new executive actions to serve the military community, which included a Joining Forces Wellness Week from November 10-14. During the week, we’ll be joining medical, behavioral health, and academic organizations to provide free virtual training to providers and students across the country.
Each day during Wellness Week, we’ll be hosting a webinar from 12 p.m. – 1 p.m. ET:
To join one or all of these webinars, register here, and you can also check back for the archived versions of all five events.
The Center for Deployment Psychology will host the webinars through their training platform, and content will be provided by the Association of American Medical Colleges, American Academy of Nursing, American Psychiatric Association, the American Nurses Association, the American Nurses Foundation, the American Psychiatric Nurses Association, and Give an Hour.
From the very beginning of Joining Forces, the health care, behavioral health, and academic communities have answered the call to provide quality support for veterans, service members, and their families. Next week will give providers and students an opportunity to learn about topics such as military culture, taking a military health history, stress-related injuries, the unique needs of parents of service members, and tele-health. We applaud the efforts of these organizations to expand the knowledge of providers and students who interact with veterans, service members, and their families.
