Tidball meets w Secretary of Interior and Agency Heads to Discuss Hunting and Fishing Access for Veterans

Tidball, who is conducting research on how park and outdoor recreation promotes physical activity and both preventative as well as therapeutic health benefits among US Military veterans, was invited to participate in a roundtable discussion with Secretary of the Interior Ryan Zinke, Deputy Director of US Fish and Wildlife Service Greg Sheehan, and high-level representatives from the National Park Service, the US Geological Survey, and the Bureau of Land Management. Tidball, a veteran and avid outdoorsman himself, was glad to be able to share some of the results of his USDA NIFA funded research at the roundtable. A press release regarding the event is available from the Department of the Interior here.
