||Trans-NIH Resilience Working Group Inaugural Webinar:
Designing Resilience Research in the Context of Military Stress
Description: Join the Trans-NIH Resilience Working Group for its inaugural webinar where NIH grantees from the University of Minnesota Medical School discuss their strategies for designing resilience research within the context of military stress. Featured speaker, Melissa A. Polusny, Ph.D., L.P., is principal investigator of the Advancing Research on Mechanism of Resilience (ARMOR) Study, a large multi-level, prospective longitudinal study investigating resilience processes that promote adjustment among National Guard service members. The goal of ARMOR is to identify neural, behavioral, and interpersonal pathways to resilience that will lead to the development of interventions to enhance well-being and prevent stress-related psychopathology. This study is supported by the National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health. Dr. Polusny will describe her study and address how the study was designed and how concepts of resilience were applied for measuring study outcomes. Her colleague, Christopher R. Erbes, Ph.D., A.B.P.P., will participate in a brief panel discussion following the main presentation.
This event is open to the public. Registration is not required.

About the Trans-NIH Resilience Working Group
The Oﬃce of Dietary Supplements (ODS), in its role as a coordinating oﬃce within the NIH Oﬃce of the Director, established the Trans-NIH Resilience Working Group in 2019 to bring together NIH institutes, centers, and oﬃces that have strategic priorities related to, or funds dedicated to, resilience programs. Chaired by ODS’s LaVerne L. Brown, Ph.D., the group identiﬁed the need for a comprehensive resilience research model that complements the NIH’s mission to seek fundamental knowledge about the nature and behavior of living systems and to promote the application of that knowledge to enhance health, lengthen life, and reduce illness and disability.
