Military Families' & Veterans' Health
Memorial University was established as a “living memorial” to the fallen of the Great Wars. At a time filled with commemorations recognizing the significant anniversaries of WWI events, it was deemed timely to initiate discussions to advance the establishment of a university partnership with community and government sectors dedicated to the well-being of military personnel, veterans, and their families. In addition to mobilizing and enabling the engagement of partners across disciplines and sectors, this group aims to initiate a responsive and sustainable research alliance that over the longterm could make a positive difference to an important and under researched sector of our province, the Canadian Forces family.
This Research Exchange Group meets at the Department of National defence and is convened by Dr. Gail Wideman from Memorial's School of Social Work.
