Thanks to all who have signed-up to attend the PTSD follow-up workshop. Unfortunately, Keith Cox has been called to be in Charleston on April 23rd, so he has asked Linette Dubois to speak about the Progress study. Linette has been with the study for 1 1/2 years, along with Keith, and is well-invested in the PTSD study. Linette Dubois will speak about the Progress study and how it is an option for treatment at the VA. She will not speak to the DSM-5 diagnoses, but will have a presentation and allow time for Q and A afterwards.

Sorry for the change, but things happens. Please remember to register by Friday, April 18th.


Keith Cox, from the VA, is a PTSD researcher and clinician with the Charleston PTSD Clinical Team and the Department of Psychiatric and Behavioral Sciences at the Medical University of South Carolina. Keith's graduate studies were at Northwestern University and during his psychological residency he had specialized training in traumatic stress at the Charleston Consitorium. Currently, Keith Cox, is a project therapist for the Progress Study, a mult-isite, DoD funded trial of Setraline and Prolonged Exposure for the treatment of PTSD. In addition to the up-date on the Progress Study of PTSD in Savannah, Mr. Cox will note the changes in the DSM-5 diagnosis of PTSD as well as treatment options.

Please come to the luncheon to follow-up on the wonderful conference that CSWA-S had in March, presented by Dr. Marjan Holloway, to hear what Mr. Cox has learned during the PTSD study. The lunch will  be at the Marsh Auditorium at Candler Hospital this month at the usual time, 11:30-1:00, on April 23rd. Please RSVP by April 18th and remember boxed lunches are $7.00.

We look forward to seeing you all there and have a great month!
