Event

Bob Woodruff: Are We Serving Our Veterans?
In January 2006, Mr. Woodruff had just been named co-anchor of ABC-TV's "World News Tonight," replacing the late Peter Jennings, when his life changed in an instant:  He was seriously injured in a roadside bombing in Iraq. Woodruff's experience as a survivor of traumatic brain injury (TBI) and as an embedded reporter with U.S. troops leads him to ask:  With so many soldiers returning home to face life-altering healthcare and mental health issues, a high unemployment rate and even homelessness, are we doing all we can to serve our nation's veterans and their families?

Followed by a panel discussion/"Town Meeting" on the needs of veterans, moderated by Bryan Johnson, senior correspondent/analyst for KOMO 4 News. Panel members, all veterans, are Mary Forbes, Washington Department of Veterans Affairs; Audrey Hudgins, Seattle University; Timm Lovitt, Vet Corps consultant on TBI issues; and Sheila Sebron, veteran advocate and governing board member, Committee to End Homelessness in King County. See more about the panelists at http://www.seattleu.edu/artsci/communication/csc after buying your ticket.

Doors open 6 p.m. Come early to visit veterans groups in the lobby.

Mr. Woodruff is visiting the area by invitation of Seattle University's Center for Strategic Communications and its Project on Family Homelessness.  His visit is part of the project's ongoing work to build public awareness and understanding of family homelessness.  The project is funded by a grant from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.

Proceeds will benefit the Bob Woodruff Foundation, the national nonprofit that ensures our nation's injured service members, veterans and their families return to a homefront ready to support them.
