This presentation will describe the issues face by many military veterans after they return from combat assignments, and will outline the rewards and challenges of providing massage services for this special populations.  The presenters are staff members and/or volunteers with the Returning Veterans Project; they will share stories from their work with these veterans.  They will provide information about how you can volunteer as an LMT.  (Volunteers need to be licensed LMTs with insurance.)

Returning Veterans Project (RVP) is a 7-year-old nonprofit comprised of approximately 140 independent health care practitioners who offer free, confidential services to returning veterans and service members of the current Iraq and Afghanistan campaigns, and their families.  RVP believes it is our collective responsibility to offer support and healing for the short and long-term repercussions of warzone service on veterans and their families.

Oregon School of Massage is pleased to support RVP.  We encourage you to attend.  For more information about RVP, visit their website: www.returningveterans.org.
