On February 6, 2013, the Honorable Linda Schwartz, DrPH, MSN, RN, USAF (Ret), FAAN, will give the 2013 Harriet Cook Carter Lecture on Healing the Wounds of War from 4:00 to 5:00 p.m. in the Duke University School of Nursing Auditorium. The purpose of this presentation is to increase awareness about the occupational hazards and exposures associated with military service and the long-term health consequences these may have on veterans and their families. Given that 75 percent of America’s veterans do not use the VA for health care, their status as veterans should be a very important part of any health history assessment or intake process.
A reception will follow in Café DUSON. The lecture is free and open to the public, but space is limited. To register, contact Sherene Jenkins at firstname.lastname@example.org or 919-684-9444. This lecture will also be broadcasted live on the web. For more information, visit nursing.duke.edu.
