News Release
Gallery Reception to Honor Veterans and Their Loved Ones Featured in 'From War to Home: The Impact of Invisible Injuries' Exhibit - 06/24/19

PORTLAND, Oregon – The community and media are invited to join Multnomah County and VA Portland Health Care System on June 25, 2019 from 3:00 to 5:00 p.m. for a free gallery reception honoring Veterans and their loved ones featured in From War to Home: The Impact of Invisible Injuries. The exhibit is located at the Multnomah County Building Board Room 100, 501 S.E. Hawthorne Blvd, Portland, 97214. Welcome remarks, introductions, and a Q&A session will begin at 3:30 p.m.

About the exhibit:

From War to Home: The Impact of Invisible Injuries explores the lasting effects of invisible injuries of war and military service on post 9/11 service era Veterans and those closest to them. As part of research by the Center to Improve Veteran Involvement in Care (CIVIC), using photovoice methods, Veterans with traumatic brain injury (TBI) and their family caregivers were given cameras and asked to take photos to illustrate their experiences of living with TBI and other invisible injuries related to military service. A selection of these powerful images and stories from Veterans and their families, living in Portland, Oregon and Southeast Louisiana, is on display in the Multnomah Building, Board Room through Thursday, June 27, 2019. The exhibit is funded by CIVIC, a Veterans Health Administration Health Services Research & Development (HSR&D) Center of Innovation located at VA Portland Health Care System.
