The Defense Centers of Excellence (DCoE) presents: 

Title: DCoE February Webinar: Treating Sleep Problems in PTSD and TBI
Date: Feb. 23, 2012, 1-2:30 p.m. (EST)

Purpose: The DCoE February webinar will focus on evidence-based and empirically-supported treatments for sleep problems (e.g., trouble getting to sleep, trouble staying asleep, nightmares and excessive daytime sleepiness) that are common in patients with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and/or traumatic brain injury (TBI). Both behavioral and pharmacological treatments will be presented, with a special emphasis on prazosin. Prazosin is a medication that has been found to be effective in reducing combat-related nightmares.

Hiring Heroes Job Fair in North Carolina

There will be a Hiring Heroes job fair on February 10 from 9am-12pm at the Crown Center-1960 Coliseum Drive, in Fayetteville. Click on this link to register: https://hoh.greatjob.net/sc/viewEvent.action?id=105284

This fair is open to all veterans, families and transitioning service members. The event is free for vendors so please consider hosting atable. This is a great opportunity for start ups, small businesses, local colleges and nonprofits, priced out of some job fairs, to showcase their companies. That's a win-win for job seekers and employers, so please pass this information along to potential employers (big companies & small companies). It's also a great chance to showcase your resources and volunteer opportunities (to network and enhance their resumes). Our experience indicates that combined resource/job fairs are more effective than stand alone fairs. Sign up is easy.
