Politics & Service | Friday, Nov 11, 2016
Military veterans make up less than 8 percent of U.S. Population, yet this population displays a unprecedented number of health disparities that have risen to the level of a public health crisis. The physical and emotional toll of the military lifestyle combined with 15 years of continuous war-fighting complicates the assessment and treatment of military members and their families. The Sturm Specialty in Military Psychology has developed a novel mechanism for the training and treatment of this population and is uniquely positioned to serve Veterans, Service members and their families.
