The Institute for Defense and Government Advancement (IDGA) has just announced the Military Healthcare Convention and Conference set to take place at the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center in San Antonio, Texas from May 21st through the 24th.
Our service men and women face innumerable challenges when they return home from a tour of duty serving our country. Sometimes these challenges amount to simple financial problems, though other times they can be more severe, like Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) or Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI). These problems put the cares of these individuals in the spotlight, helping them get the care they need.
The Military Healthcare Convention and Conference was designed to highlight the problems faced by these brave men and women and work on ways to help these people get the care they need and deserve. Attendees for the event will include some top military and medical personnel in the military healthcare field, including:
Commanding General of AR-MEDCOM Major General Robert Kasulke, Deputy Joint Staff Surgeon Brigadier General Paul S. Dwan, Former Assistant Secretary of Defense for Health Affairs/CEO of Casscells & Associates The Honorable Ward Casscells, Air Force Instructor Pilot and Founder of Yoga Warriors Major Jon Greuel, Surgeon at the US Army Burn Center Colonel Lee Cancio, Deputy Commander at Brook Army Medical Center Colonel Noel Cardenas, Director of Medevac Prominence and Aviation Consultant to the Army Surgeon General Colonel Robert D. Mitchell and Deputy Commander at the District of Columbia National Guard/Medical Detachment Colonel Harry P. Marshall Jr.
In addition to all the guest speakers the event will also feature pre and post conference workshop days. These days will focus on both PTSD and TBI as well as the expansion of Telehealth and technological developments and advancements in the healthcare industry. This should prove to be an exciting event for all those involved as well as one that helps support some of the bravest men and women in our country who deserve nothing less.
