Military Health Expert Dr. Evelyn Lewis on Living Your Best Life with Genma Holmes

In 1999, Congress designated the month of May as Military Appreciation Month to recognize and reflect on the men and women of the U.S. Armed Forces and their families who serve and have served this great country of ours. This month is to celebrate and honor the contributions of those who are a part of and have been a part of the US Armed Forces and the contributions they have made in preserving our way of life. Many organizations and communities around the country are celebrating this month in various ways to recognize our Active Duty members and their families, our Reserve Component members and their families and our Veterans and their families.
Join Living Your Best Life as we celebrate the lives of men and women of our military. We will hear from active duty and veterans who will share personal stories and highlights from their military careers and the next chapter in their lives. All have roles that made them the "first" in many endeavors throughout their lives and in the military. We will hear about their many acts of courage and sacrifice that embody servant leadership that will empower, inspire, and motivate listeners.

 On Saturday, May 25, 2013, tune in to hear from CAPT.(sel) Evelyn Lewis&Clark, USN Retired, who served  twenty-five years in the Navy as a medical doctor. Hear her share about her career as a Navy family physician and the work she does now addressing post traumatic stress syndrome (PTSD) and traumatic brain injury (TBI). Listen as we will learn how the military, families, communities, and leaders must become more educated and engaged about mental health among our veterans and active duty members of our military.

Tune into 760AM in the Middle Tennessee Region, streaming live on line at UStream.TV and on military bases on Saturdays from 9:00-10am CST.
