Military Families Learning Network Family Development Team Receives Prestigious Award

Members of the Military Families Learning Network (MFLN) Family Development Team at Valdosta State University were recently honored with the Mary W. Wells Memorial Diversity Award for their part in producing the 2018 Virtual Conference titled Cultural Competency Awareness, Action, and Advocacy. Along with other MFLN teams at Auburn, Virginia Tech, North Dakota State, Texas A & M, University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign, and University of Minnesota, VSU’s MFLN Family Development team will be presented with the award at the National Extension Association of Family & Consumer Sciences (NEAFCS) awards ceremony in the fall.

The MFLN Family Development team, comprised of Dr. Kacy Mixon, Jason Jowers and Kalin Goble and housed in the College of Education & Human Services, is part of a national grant initiative funded by the Department of Defense (DoD). MLFN produces free, open access, online learning opportunities such as webinars, virtual conferences, podcasts and other resources to support the work of educators and human service providers connected to military service members and their families. In addition to a focus on Family Development, other MFLN teams across the country include: Military Caregiving, Personal Finance, Early Intervention, Community Capacity Building, Family Transitions, Network Literacy, and Nutrition & Wellness

In August, MFLN will be hosting a groundbreaking webinar series bringing together three pre-eminent resilience theorists and researchers, Dr. Ann Masten, Dr. Froma Walsh, and Dr. Michael Ungar, to share insight on addressing barriers, identifying various systems and promoting protective factors to support individual, family and community resilience. Participants will engage with these influential facilitators and each other to practice resilience thinking and learn how to apply the principles from this series in their work.

When it comes to webpage design and development, a solid approach that aligns with marketing requirements is essential. Despite the abundance of internet templates, you must understand what should and should not be included in your website. A pre-made common template may not be appropriate for your company, necessitating website customization and development.
