About the event

Keeping the Humanity in Health Care

The WSU College of Nursing welcomes co-author of the New York Times best-selling In an Instant: A Family’s Journey of Love and Healing, Lee Woodruff. Lee garnered critical acclaim for the compelling and humorous chronicle of her family’s journey to recovery following her husband Bob’s roadside bomb injury in Iraq. Appearing publicly and on national television since the February 2007 publication of their book, the couple has helped put a face on the serious issue of traumatic brain injury among returning Iraq and Afghanistan war veterans, as well as the millions of Americans who live with this often invisible, but life-changing affliction.
