Veterans Working to Help Fellow Veterans in Southwest Florida

Nov 7, 2018

We’re joined in studio by two local veterans who are working to connect other local vets with support services, including fitness, social, and clinical programs, both around southwest Florida and here on the campus of Florida Gulf Coast University. Armando Hernandez is the Southwest Florida Program Director for a program called Home Base - it’s part of the Boston Red Sox Foundation that’s dedicated to healing the Invisible Wounds of War for Service Members, Veterans, and their Families through clinical care, and wellness-based programs. We're also joined by Dr. Brigitte Belanger, she’s an Assistant Professor of Rehabilitation Sciences at FGCU who recently retired after a career as an Army Occupational Therapist.
