Staff Perspective: Military Families Share Their Experiences During COVID-19

Dr. Jenny Phillips

Following up on Christy Collette’s piece on "Military Family Resilience during COVID-19," this week’s blog will share additional information about the unique impacts of the pandemic on military families.
