Military Sexual Harassment and Its Impact on Veterans' Health Webinar

The New York State Health Foundation will host Military Sexual Harassment and Its Impact on Veterans' Health, a webinar on Tuesday, October 5, 12-1pm.

Approximately 8 out of 10 women in America report experiencing some form of sexual harassment in their lifetime. Women who serve in uniform are no exception. According to the Independent Review Commission on Sexual Assault in the Military, many service women describe feeling singled out and report being the subject of near-daily sexist comments. Not only does this harassment negatively impact the health of victims, but the unchecked behavior also creates a significantly higher risk for sexual assault.

Countless studies over the years have shown the pervasiveness of military sexual harassment and assault, and numerous recommendations have been made to address the problem—but these harmful behaviors continue.

Please join NYSHealth for a webinar with Haley Britzky, a military reporter who has covered the high-profile cases of Specialist Vanessa Guillén and Corporal Thae Ohu, about the military’s efforts to end sexual assault, the extent of military sexual harassment, and the health implications for veterans.

This 60-minute webinar will feature a short discussion followed by audience Q&A.
