March 2018 Lunch and Learn Announced: Military Sexual Trauma

Health care professionals are invited to Hospice of the Red River Valley’s upcoming Lunch and Learn as we continue to explore topics related to end-of-life care. Lunch and Learns are held every other month on the second Tuesday of the month from noon to 1 p.m.

Upcoming Session
The next session will be held Tuesday, March 13 from noon-1 p.m. Susan Thompson, Military Sexual Trauma (MST) Program Coordinator at the VA Medical Center, will present “Military Sexual Trauma: Understanding, Recovery and Long-Term Effects.”

Attendees will learn the definition of MST and how to identify the physical and mental health symptoms that are commonly associated with MST. Participants will gain an understanding of why MST can be so toxic and of the long-term effects this type of trauma often has on a person.
