About

Volunteers conduct a one-hour interview with Veterans about their life experiences and write a 800-1000 word summary of the interview. The story is then entered into the Veteran's official healthcare record to allow doctors, nurses, and other providers to develop a deeper understanding of the Veteran and provide more holistic care. Topics include military experience, childhood, family support system, hobbies, medical concerns, and topics that matter to the Veteran that may not be otherwise discussed during their appointments. The ideal volunteer would possess strong writing/editing skills and/or a healthcare background.
