Unsung and Unserved: The Double-Edged Sword Facing Today’s Women Veterans

Wednesday, February 13, 2019

6:00 PM - 8:00 PM

Maryland Hall - Bowen Theatre
801 Chase Street
Annapolis, MD 21401

An unprecedented number of women joined the military after 9/11.  As the number of active duty women soldiers has soared, so has the number of women veterans. Issues of domestic violence and sexual trauma have long been neglected in the military, and women veterans face unique challenges in accessing appropriate mental health and health care services, both while serving and as veterans. Come learn how people both within the Veteran's Administration and outside groups are working to address these issues, and how women veterans are being served in Anne Arundel County.

Guest speakers include:

Laura Pinnock, MSPH, PMP
  Senior Consultant, Center for Military & Veterans' Health
  Washington, DC

Dee Loftis, LCSW-C
  Arundel Lodge Behavioral Health Center
  Edgewater, MD

Lieutenant General Flora D. Darpino, USA (Ret.)
  Former Judge Advocate General, U.S. Army
  Trustee, Service Women's Action Network
  Washington, DC
