RANCHO CORDOVA, Calif. --(Business Wire)--

Health Net Federal Services, LLC, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Health Net, Inc. (NYSE:HNT), today announced its continued partnership with Penn State Milton S. Hershey Medical Center and Penn State College of Medicine and the American Red Cross, through its Service to the Armed Forces program, to promote the last in a series of four symposiums entitled, "Meeting the Needs of Returning Military Service Members," for primary care physicians and behavioral health professionals in the Chicago-area and part of the TRICARE North Region.

"As this year's series of behavioral health symposiums comes to a close in Chicago, we are very proud to know that the hundreds of physicians and behavioral health professionals who have attended these symposiums are better equipped to assess and treat the invisible wounds of war," said Thomas Carrato, president, Health Net Federal Services. "The enthusiasm and interest from those who attended the symposiums speaks to the collective commitment within our region to the resiliency and well-being of our service members and their families who sacrifice so much for our country."

Topics that are scheduled to be discussed at the symposium include post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) assessment tools and list factors that impact screening among military personnel; emerging technologies that support psychological health and brain injury recovery in the military community; mechanisms of injury and Department of Defense diagnostic criteria for mild, moderate, severe and penetrating traumatic brain injury (TBI); clinical practice guidelines for the management of mild TBI in non-deployed settings; contrasting the components of a differential diagnosis of TBI and/or PTSD; and understanding challenges faced by returning service members and program benefits available to them.

The symposium will be conducted by leaders from the Center for Deployment Psychology at the Uniformed Services University, the National Center for Telehealth and Technology, and the Defense and Veterans Brain Injury Center. Penn State College of Medicine is accredited by the Accreditation Council of Continuing Medical Education to provide continuing medical education for physicians, APA and NASW credits for behavioral health professionals, and credits for nurses also are available. This symposium has been designated for 7.0 continuing medical education (CME) hours.

The full-day symposium is expected to be held Dec. 8, 2012, at the Adler School of Professional Psychology, 17 North Dearborn Street, Community Room, in Chicago, Ill.
