Program overview

The Military Family Research Institute at Purdue University, in partnership with the Richard L. Roudebush VA Medical Center, Indiana National Guard and the Department of Veterans Affairs is pleased to present the Battlemind to Home Summit.

The Battlemind to Home Summit brings together a variety of experts each year to inform and educate Indiana professionals on the critical issues facing military-connected families in Indiana’s communities. Our goal for this conference is to help reduce reintegration barriers for veterans, service members and military families. We work to educate attendees on the challenges military-connected families face, and also the opportunities and strengths they bring to our communities.
