Lee Woodruff Confirmed as NYSHFA/NYSCAL Opening Keynote Speaker


As co-author of the New York Times best seller In an Instant, Lee Woodruff chronicled her family’s journey to recovery following her husband Bob’s roadside bomb injury in Iraq. The couple helped put a face on the serious issue of traumatic brain injury among returning war veterans, as well as the millions who live with this often invisible, but life-changing affliction. They have founded the Bob Woodruff Foundation to assist post-9/11 injured service members, veterans, and their families heal from the physical and silent wounds of war. Woodruff served as the Closing Keynote Speaker at the 2016 AHCA/NCAL Annual Convention. In addition, she has been a contributing reporter for CBS This Morning and Good Morning America. Her best-selling book Perfectly Imperfect – A Life in Progress, was followed by her first novel Those We Love Most, which became a New York Times best seller and won the “Washington Irving Book Award” for fiction.


Woodruff headlines a lineup that includes, Mark Parkinson, President & CEO of AHCA/NCAL, Leah Klusch, The Alliance Training Center, and Jim Bryan, Closing Keynote Speaker.
