Military veteran workshop for future health practitioners


Local and national military experts will join faculty members from the University of Southern Indiana to teach future care providers about the unique challenges facing combat veterans and their families. The Veterans of Interprofessional Case Competition will give 30 USI undergraduate and graduate students an introduction to military culture and make them aware of post-combat readjustment experiences and the needs of veterans of all ages. The workshop will begin with the presentation of colors by USI’s Reserve Officer’s Training Corps color guard. Retired lieutenant colonel Tony Sanabria will share experiences from his tours in Germany, Korea, Iraq, and Afghanistan and the issues many of his fellow veterans face after deployment.
