War and Public Health (English)
A public health seminar recorded on October 3, 2011. This presentation will focus on the public health ramifications in the U.S., of the current wars in Iraq and Afghanistan - from long term physical disability, to mental health issues, substance abuse, suicide, community/family violence and injury. Not only have the wars affected health outcomes for the returning military personnel and veterans, but the effects have extended to their families as well. A new kind of collateral damage will be found in how the multiple deployments during the current wars are likely to affect the children and spouses of military personnel.
