Brain Injury and Female Veterans-New Webinar to explore issues

The Brain Injury Association of New York State (BIANYS) is offering a free webinar— “Improved Outcomes for Women Veterans: Brain Injury Services As Part of a Trauma-Informed Environment.”

The webinar will be hold on October 31st, 1-2:15 PM EDT

Research suggests that 81-93% of female veterans have been exposed to some type of trauma, significantly higher than the civilian population rates. In this webinar, Jill Gutierrez will provide information on trauma-informed care, including its relationship to brain injury, to help organizations working with women veterans better understand their unique experiences and to improve organizational effectiveness when working with this population.

Jill Gutierrez has been a program analyst for the Women’s Bureau’s New York office of the U.S. Department of Labor since 2008.  She actively promotes programs and policies to ensure quality work environments for women.
