PRESENTERS: Suzi Guardia, Blue Star Families; Mike Greenwood, Team Red, White & Blue; Kyle Martin, Outdoor Mindset

MODERATOR: Ivan Levin, National Park Trust

DESCRIPTION: Outdoor recreation is emerging as one of the leading tools being used to address emotional and psychological well-being.  Whether it is a military family’s feeling of isolation, a veteran’s struggle with PTSD or an individual affected by neurological challenges, the outdoors provides a physical setting and space for community building, therapy and healing. Join the National Park Trust as they moderate a discussion with a panel of organizations working with unique communities around the country on the important contributions the outdoors provides to improving quality of life.
