On Monday, the contingent of Washington Redskins wives at this week's Owners Meetings in Phoenix found themselves both inspired and determined to help put a dent in the nation's domestic violence epidemic.


Today, the wives were treated to an interesting dicussion, led by a former U.S. Surgeon General, about all sorts of medical issues and topics that could be directly affecting those around them.

The league's Spouse Program on Tuesday brought in Dr. Richard Carmona, who served as the nation's 17th U.S. Surgeon General from August 2002 until July 2006.

Currently the President of the Canyon Ranch Institute, Carmona on Tuesday discussed a variety of issues, including methods to improve one's memory, the use of vaccines, tobacco use and much, much more.

The Redskins wives in attendance Tuesday were Tanya Snyder (wife of owner Dan Snyder), Kiersten Allen (wife of team President Bruce Allen), Sherry Gruden (wife of head coach Jay Gruden), Jessica McCloughan (future wife of general manager Scot McCloughan) and Jaymie Schaffer (wife of team VP of Football Administration, Eric Schaffer).

The group also got the chance to take a photo with Carmona, who just released a book entitled *30 Days To A Better Brain*. Each attendee at Tuesday's event got a copy of the book.
