UCI Seminar Examines Fallout from Afghanistan War on Public Health Here
The effects of the war in Afghanistan on that country's inhabitants, the U.S. military and geopolitics have been kicked around plenty but what about the cost to America's public health system?
That topic gets its due through a UC Irvine seminar surrounding the war's 10th anniversary.
It's available for viewing on UCI's OpenCourseWare site.
In the seminar, UCI Public Health program lecturer Pauline Lubens addresses how the war has affected U.S. citizens and the many ramifications veterans face upon returning home from war, including physical disability, mental health issues, substance abuse, suicide, community violence and other crimes that may affect families and their communities.
