To help more veterans access high-quality care, the Bush Institute launched the Warrior Wellness Alliance.

Connecting Veterans With Best-In-Class Health Care Providers

June 23, 2017
Ioanna Papas
To help more veterans access high-quality care, the Bush Institute launched the Warrior Wellness Alliance, which connects peer-to-peer veteran networks with best-in-class health providers.

Research has shown that as many as 550,000 post-9/11 warriors could be dealing with PTS. We know that effective treatments for this condition exist, and that high quality care can lead to recovery for these warriors. But unfortunately, research also shows that 50 percent of them have not sought care, either because of stigma or not knowing where to receive care. 

This is why the Bush Center recently launched the Warrior Wellness Alliance. The Alliance has brought together innovative high-quality care providers like TriWest, the Cohen Veterans Network and the Warrior Care Network with peer networks like Team, Red, White, and Blue, Team Rubicon, the Student Veterans of America, the Wounded Warrior Project, Mission Continues, and the Bush Institute's own Team 43. 

We have seen that warriors are more likely to ask their buddies for help, but many times they do not have the network to connect with their peers. The Alliance provides peer-to-peer veteran networks and best-in-class healthcare providers to help veterans begin the steps to successfully transition from military to civilian life.
