I WAS THERE = IWT
John Knight reports: IWT Founder/Executive Director Benjamin Patton spoke at the Omega Institute’s conference “Veterans, Trauma & Resilience: What’s Next” at the Society for Ethicial Culture in NY last weekend.
The conference was attended by several hundred veterans and caregivers. Ben’s panel focused on individuals and organizations developing innovative ways to bring frontline veteran care from the clinic to the community. It was moderated by BG (Ret.)
