The Impact of Family Violence on Military Families

The National Health Collaborative on Violence and Abuse is hosting a webinar January 21st from 1-2:30 pm ET, Supporting Our Troops’ Families: The Impact of Family Violence on Military Families. There are CMEs available; nurses you get the bum deal on this one–no CEUs (which I have to say is disappointing considering the chair of the Collaborative is a nurse; there are nursing organizations participating in the Collaborative, including IAFN; one of the speakers is a nurse; and the moderator is a nurse–tough to understand how that happens). Still, it looks like a good session, being familiar with several of the folks presenting. Details after the jump:
