Veterans Health and Wellness Forum

Veterans Health and Wellness Forum

With military efforts in Afghanistan coming to an end, and the war in Iraq having ceased, returning veterans may find themselves facing chronic health and other combat stressors similar to those faced by their brothers and sisters in conflicts past.  To address this important condition, authors Jack McLean and Dick Hughes will share lessons learned from the Vietnam War and their work with survivor groups at a free and open public lecture to be held on the campus of Millersville University. 

Joining McLean and Hughes will be Keitha R. Beamer, Clinical Nurse Specialist in the Addiction Recovery Unit at Philadelphia Veterans Affairs Medical Center.  She will discuss ways US military personnel and their families can obtain mental health services and discuss her work in the addiction recovery unit. 

John C. Bear, a member of the Pennsylvania House of Representatives who has represented Lancaster County for the past six years, will give keynote remarks for currently enrolled student-veterans at a luncheon sponsored by The William A Dinges ’65 Endowed Veterans Scholarship at Millersville University.
