National Research Summit
on Reserve Component Military Families

April 25 & 26, 2013
University of Michigan
Ann Arbor, Michigan

Successful research programs and services for military families have been launched across the country, yet few professional venues exist that foster the sharing of this information, and none that focus exclusively on the unique needs of National Guard and Reserve families.  Cultivating collaboration and highlighting translational approaches are essential to advancing the frontier of military family research and to making a lasting and positive impact in addressing the mental health needs of military families.

The National Research Summit on Reserve Component Military Families will bring together researchers, military leadership, national advocacy organizations, and clinicians from across the country to present cutting-edge research and best practices for Reserve Component military families, with an emphasis on unique and innovative strategies for reaching families and planning for future needs.  This two-day, interdisciplinary event will offer a forum for a high-level exchange of knowledge, experience, and ideas; and collaborative planning to best serve our National Guard and Reserve military families.
