Under the mentorship of Dr. Pugh, Dr. Delgado is developing a military caregiver portfolio as part of her post-doctoral work. The emphasis of Dr. Delgado's research is in health-related factors, determinants and disparities among military caregivers. She holds a post-graduate certificate in Qualitative research and analysis from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and has conducted numerous qualitative studies in military population to include military families. Dr. Delgado is an Elizabeth Dole Foundation Fellow representing the State of Texas and forms part of the military caregiver community. Mary Jo V.

Dr. Pugh has 15 years of experience in acquiring and utilizing VA databases, identifying comorbidities, conducting large scale studies with these VA databases, conducting medical chart abstraction using VA electronic medical records, merging VA data with the DoD Trauma Registry, and interview studies of VA clinicians and Veterans. Much of this experience has focused on epidemiology of epilepsy including the relationship between TBI and epilepsy, patient outcomes and quality of epilepsy care in the VA. Kimberly McConnell, EdD is a Senior Research Scientist with the Department of Epidemiology and Biostatistics at the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio (UTHSCSA). She has extensive experience in the areas of caregiver fatigue (by training) and has volunteered with a number of organizations serving the military caregiver community. She has been involved with research concerning Soldiers at San Antonio Military Medical Center for over 6 years. She was intimately involved as the Program Manager with a project focusing on compassion fatigue in the Institute of Surgical Research (US Military Burn Center) and a community reintegration project for wounded service members with the Center for the Intrepid. The military is unlike any other career and the demands of military life create a unique set of pressures on service members and their families. Understanding military culture is important when addressing mental health concerns with veterans and their families. Currently, there are 5.5 million military caregivers across the United States, with nearly 20 percent caring for someone who served since the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001. Military caregivers experience more health problems, face greater strains in family relationships, and have more workplace issues than non-caregivers (RAND, 2014). The objectives of this presentation are to describe military culture and implication for caregiving, explain the magnitude and roles of military caregiving, and discuss the unique issues of military caregivers.
