Sen. Johnson Encourages Scholarship Opportunity

St. Paul, MN- Senator Alice Johnson (DFL-Blaine) encourages her constituents and any interested individuals to take advantage of a scholarship opportunity that would enable two women veterans to attend the upcoming Mind Body Medicine program.

The Mind Body Medicine program is sponsored by the Women Veterans Initiative, and run through the Center for Mind-Body Medicine, a non-profit that uses modern science and a human connection to create a powerful medicine centered on self-care and group support. The two available scholarships would cover the entire cost of the training, which focuses on practical techniques, including meditation, biofeedback, self-expression, and small group leadership.

“This wonderful organization has already changed thousands of lives,” remarked Sen. Johnson. “The available scholarships will allow two Minnesota veterans to use their new skills to improve on the experiences of women veterans in our state. This is an exciting opportunity for any female veteran who has a passion for healing, and I would encourage them to apply!”

The Women Veterans Initiative’s scholarships are made possible through a $20,000 grant from the Catalyst Initiative to promote the use of complimentary or alternative mental health programs among female veterans. Interested veterans can visit and click on the Mind Body Medicine tab, or email for information on how to apply before the application deadline on July 10.
