Our 2019 VET Talks presentations are now accessible on Pamlico Rose’s YouTube channel.  The Talks featured two remarkable military officers.  Both are advancing the health and wellness of the force relying on their academic, professional, and personal experience to bring about change.  (A blog on the 2018 VET Talks can be found HERE.)

CAPT Kimberly Elenberg and Dr. Rachel Breslin presented compelling narratives on the importance of resilience in their personal military journeys as well as their ability to support and often lead in accomplishing the mission.  Also available is the introduction given by Pamlico Rose’s Dr. Robert Greene Sands and Dr. Allison Greene-Sands’ moving recitation of local poet Monk Wheeler’s “The Hand the Rocked the Cradle.”  Allison presented our brick of appreciation to both Kimberly and Rachel in her office in the Pentagon.

As an integral part of its mission, Pamlico Rose considers raising awareness of issues and topics to Veterans and non-Veterans alike that can impact their well-being and bring about a better quality of life.  Our Healing Vets Weekend is just one of those events and our VET Talks – IBX (Inner Banks) specifically addresses this aspect of our mission.
