NYHealth’s Initiative for Returning Veterans and Their Families seeks to underscore that the health care, mental health, and social services issues returning veterans and their families face are not solely military issues, but public and community health issues that should be addressed by local and national government agencies, community-based organizations, and health funders.

In this video, NYHealth President and CEO James R. Knickman discusses the future of NYHealth’s investment in returning veterans and their families with Retired Colonel James McDonough, Jr., NYHealth Senior Fellow for Veterans Affairs.
