A conference addressing the support of
veterans and their family members
experiencing the effects of combat stress
and traumatic brain injury.
The Virginia Wounded Warrior Program is proud to host the annual Virginia is for Heroes statewide conference addressing combat/operational stress and traumatic brain injury. This year’s conference will be held on Thursday February 18, 2010 at the Greater Richmond Convention Center.
Conference participants include veterans and their family members; local, state and national leaders; subject matter experts; and those serving on the “front lines” of behavioral healthcare and supportive services.
Presenters will be sharing information about recent initiatives to partner with communities to expand behavioral healthcare and supportive services to veterans in the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, as well as those affected by previous conflicts.
There also will be opportunities to learn about the infrastructure established throughout Virginia as a result of the Virginia Wounded Warrior Program and to discuss and plan for regional resources.
Recognizing the importance of providing the best information available in order to support veterans and their families in their communities, this conference is offered free of charge.
