SPEAKER: Terri Tanielan
***For those of you who attended our National Veterans Conference in March, you know that Terri Tanielan of the Rand Corporation was unable to travel to NY and present on her research due to a late Spring snow storm that crippled travel in the  South. Terri has graciously agreed to come to Long Island over the summer to share her insights on military caregivers.
At the meeting on July 29th, we will also be bidding farewell to Lauren Hagemann, our VHALI Coordinator, who will be moving on in order to complete her PhD. Please join us to thank Lauren for her years of service to our veterans and our families.
