Chronic Pain in Women Veterans

Source:

The 2019 Life After Service Study* shows Canadian Veterans suffer from chronic pain twice that of the Canadian population. The study also indicates women Veterans suffer from chronic pain twice that of male Veterans. But, how does pain impact women in service compared to men?

To explore this topic in more depth, Tom Hoppe is joined by Luc J. Hébert, host of the French version of The Most Painful Podcast, and Hélène Le Scelleur, Co-Chair for the CPCoE Advisory Council for Veterans who is completing her Ph.D. on military identity.
