Wednesday on Lake Effect: VA Mental Health Summit, Adult Braces, Royal Roost, Mason Bees

Wednesday on Lake Effect:

The 6th annual VA Mental Health Summit takes place at the UWM Student Union this Saturday. We learn why the Zablocki VA Medical Center and UWM make such good partners in providing veterans with both health and educational services. Then, as the trend of raising backyard chickens grows in Milwaukee, one local business owner has made it her mission to help. Lake Effect essayist Marnie Mamminga gets braces - at 65, and a new children’s book examines a lesser known, local bee that’s a major pollinator.
