With over 300,000 women deployed since September 11, 2001, the Department of Defense is facing new challenges in addressing women's health serving in austere environments. Join Dr. Elspeth Cameron Ritchie for a discussion of her new book, "Women at War," to learn how the military is addressing reproductive and urogenital health, mental health issues, the psychological effects of war, intimate partner violence, sexual assault and suicide, as well as the veterans experience.
