presentations will include:

-- "Taking Care of Soldiers and Families - Past, Present and Future" by Lt. Gen (R) Theodore G.

-- "PTSD: From Battlefront to Homefront" by Robert Ursano, M.D., chairman of the Department of Psychiatry, and director of the Center for the Study of Traumatic Stress at the Uniformed Services University School of Medicine, who will discuss rates of PTSD and TBI, effects on soldiers and their families, and planning for the healthcare needs of returning veterans.

-- "Psychological Health and Traumatic Brian Injury" by Colonel (P) Loree Sutton, M.D., the newly installed director of the Department of Defense Center for Psychological Health and Traumatic Brain Injury, who will present on the Center's efforts to address the healthcare needs of service personnel and their families who are coping with psychological problems and brain injury.

-- "The Mental Health Consequences of War" by Yuval Neria, Ph.D., associate professor of clinical psychology, Department of Psychiatry and Epidemiology, Columbia University, who will discuss the mental health consequences of war.
