In order to advance its mission and vision, CIR regularly presents at conferences and publishes various materials to promote its research and innovative technology developments, as well as to bring awareness to the challenges and policy issues facing military-impacted populations.
As part of this effort, CIR leadership and staff members regularly attend and present papers or lead topic discussions at academic conferences, community leader meetings, and conventions related to issues regarding military-impacted populations. CIR’s senior management is also involved in regular speaking engagements, testimonies before Congress, and senior military meetings.
Furthermore, CIR publishes regular Policy Briefs to promote policy issues, research, scholarship, and technology related to veterans and military families. In 2012, CIR will also launch an academic journal centered on the topic of Military Behavioral Health.
