Women comprise about 15% of the US Armed Forces and serve in ever expanding roles. In 2016, there were an estimated 1,853,690 female veterans from all branches of military service. This conference will address the unique healthcare needs of women in the military, such as cardiovascular risk, musculoskeletal injuries, military sexual trauma, suicide risk and prevention, and more. The purpose of this conference is to support the well-being of women who serve by updating military, Veteran’s Administration, and community health care providers regarding the work-up and management of health conditions common among military women.
