March 01, 2013

Karen O’Rourke, MPH, Director of UNE’s Maine AHEC  (Area Health Education Center) Network, has secured UNE’s Maine AHEC as a site for an AHEC Veterans Mental Health Project.  This is a national initiative to improve the quality of care that returning veterans receive in their communities.

The Maine AHEC Network will be hosting a continuing education session for health care providers on issues and resources for returning veterans and their families who may be dealing with post traumatic stress disorder or traumatic brain injury and other mental health issues. The programs will be held later in 2013.
