Sept. 10 program is ‘Wounded Warriors: Their Last Battle’
Elaina Koltz, veterans services coordinator, informs us of plans for a program titled “Wounded Warriors: Their Last Battle,” at 3:30 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 10, in MAC Hall 103. Guest speaker Deborah Grassman speaks on how many times military experience can impact peaceful dying for veterans even decades later. Grassman will talk about end-of-life issues unique to veterans as they age and face the end of their lives, the impact of the military experience on families, and tools for effective ways to respond to veterans’ needs. Koltz describes Grassman as a mental health nurse practitioner recognized as one of the nation’s leading experts in caring for veterans nearing the end of life.
