Honoring Women Veterans

Military service has an impact on health. That is true for all of our veterans, but women face unique challenges.  Minnesota Governor, Mark Dayton, declared Monday, June 18, Women Veteran’s Day to honor the service of women in Minnesota. In the Summer of 2010 the Center for Leadership Education in Maternal and Child Health published a volume of Healthy Generations focusing on the Health of Military Families, with attention to stressors that may especially impact women.
