Jamie Rowan, 2020 PEP Fellow, wrote an article in the Conversation describing risks to military veterans during the coronavirus pandemic

Jamie Rowan, 2020 PEP Fellow, has written an article in The Conversation and Truthout describing the ways that military veterans are particularly at risk from the coronavirus pandemic. Veterans, she writes, are particularly susceptible to both health and economic threats from the pandemic, and “face homelessness, lack of health care, delays in receiving financial support and even death.”
