Queen's co-hosts military health research forum
Chief of the Defence Staff General Walt Natynczyk speaks at the Military and Veteran Health Research Forum, held this week in Kingston and co-hosted by Queen's and Royal Military College of Canada. The forum included 250 participants from universities and research institutions across Canada. Among the topics discussed were rehabilitation, the impact of military service on life and family, mental illness among military personnel and battlefield healthcare. The forum’s goal is to stimulate a national research agenda to enhance the healthcare and protection of the more than 800,000 Canadian Forces personnel, veterans and their families. Plans for next year's forum are already underway.
