Tri-C Western Campus to host symposium on women in the military


CLEVELAND – A free workshop next week at Cuyahoga Community College’s (Tri-C®) Western Campus, 11000 Pleasant Valley Road, Parma, will focus on the unique experiences of women who have served in the military.

“She Serves – She Deserves” will feature mental health experts discussing women’s military service experiences in Iraq and issues facing female veterans, including homelessness and health care. The event, which runs from 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Wednesday, March 13, will close with a panel discussion featuring female veterans from various service periods.

CEUs are pending for the event, which aims to educate female veterans as well as medical and mental health professionals, clergy, human resources professionals and others who work with female veterans and their families.

Retired U.S. Army Col. Cheryl Ludwa will deliver the keynote address. Not only is she a veteran, she is the wife of a veteran and the mother of two daughters serving in the Army. Ludwa will share her unique perspective, which includes a career that spanned three decades during which she also balanced her roles as wife and mother. She also will address the changing roles of women in combat recently announced by the Defense Department.
