Military Families' & Veterans' Health

Memorial University was established as a “living memorial” to the fallen of the Great Wars. At a time filled with commemorations recognizing the significant anniversaries of WWI events, it was deemed timely to initiate discussions to advance the establishment of a university partnership with community and government sectors dedicated to the well-being of military personnel, veterans, and their families.
