Westport woman helps honor female veterans of war

“The dean of Fairfield University contacted me and asked if I’d be interested in applying for a position that involved taking students through their mental health rotation at the VA Hospital in West Haven,” said Doris Lippman, professor of nursing, and a veteran. “I applied for the position, and that was when I reconnected with the Vietnam vets, many of whom were suffering from PTSD. I was very upset when I saw them because I had kind of told myself that everyone who came home was doing okay, that’s just how I dealt with it, but to see them suffering really affected me.”
