Third Wounded Warrior Symposium: The Hidden Wounds of War
Advances in recent years have led to increased survival of our service members. In this, our third Wounded Warrior Symposium, we will focus on the ever present, but not always obvious, hidden wounds of wars. These include mild Traumatic Brain Injury, Posttraumatic Stress Disorder, Chronic Pain and Suicide. Our warriors bear the burdens of these injuries and frequently seek services from Eisenhower Army Medical Center, Charlie Norwood Veterans Affairs Medical Center, Augusta University or Community Service Organizations. Some warriors find meeting the challenges of their post deployment reintegration impossible to bear. Therefore, this symposium also covers suicide, which is reaching epidemic proportions among our casualties of war.
Please join us for the Wounded Warrior Symposium. The event is open to the Augusta University community, as well as the Charlie Norwood VA Medical Center, Eisenhower Army Medical Center, Fort Gordon, local community organizations and other interested individuals. The symposium will feature the real life stories of our Soldiers as well as updates on the current research being done to serve their needs and advance the frontiers of medicine. Join us as we explore where we are and where we need to be and how we need to get there. The symposium will be particularly useful to researchers who want to connect with other researchers as well as the Wounded Warrior Community.
The two day event will kick off with a reception dinner and plenary presentations on Wednesday, May 18th at Saint Paul’s Episcopal Church, 605 Reynolds Street, Augusta, in the River Room from 6:00 to 8:00 PM. The cost per person to attend the dinner is $10.00. The Symposium will be held at the Charlie Norwood VAMC Uptown Division-1 Freedom Way, 3rd Floor, 3B-111 on Thursday, May 19th from 8:00 AM till 4:30 PM. Cost to attend the Symposium is $30 per person. Students and residents may attend the event at no cost. The fee includes breakfast and lunch.
