Join MJHS on Monday, November 7, 2022 at 2pm-4pm for an amazing educational program, Achieving Success, Despite Historical Discrimination, as we hear two inspiring journeys, driven by passion and courage in service to country, peers, and loved ones.
MJHS is honored to welcome our incredible guest speakers, Dr. Annette Tucker Osborne, (Colonel of the U.S, Army, retired) and incoming President of the National Association of Black Military Women, and Director Reverend Viviana DeCohen, Director of the New York State Division of Veterans’ Services, and veteran of the U.S. Marine Corps. Each will share how they found inner strength to overcome historic discrimination to achieve success and serve as role models and mentors. For anyone who cares, or has cared for others, including veterans and family members, your awareness will be raised to perceptions and attitudes toward people of different race, gender or cultural backgrounds and gain practical strategies to self-monitor and improve person-centered, trauma-informed care. Participants will also become inspired by the narrative of resilience, hope, and courage for themselves and others. 2 CEU credits will be available for Social Workers and Nurses.
