Military Families

BoHS emphasizes sharing information regarding numerous research, education and outreach projects that serve military families. This priority has been a foundation for program sessions at national conferences of BoHS and APLU. Moreover, BoHS leaders have been active in the partnership of the Division of Family and Consumer Sciences (USDA National Institute of Food and Agriculture), the Department of Defense and the Depart of Veterans Affairs. BoHS supports the existing USDA/DoD Extension and Military Collaboration, particularly the inclusion of projects directed by research, extension, and instructional faculty in the Human Sciences that extend the current USDA/DoD collaboration to directly include competitive research initiatives focused on military and veteran families. If you are interested in joining this working group contact Dr. Brianna Nelson Goff, the leader for this BoHS initiative.
