Mission Statement

To create a culture of inclusion and diversity for active military/veteran service members and their families within the Methodist Health System. To build a sense of community and understanding within our community through shared experiences, recruitment, career development, outward engagement, professional growth and retention. 

What are the expectations if I join the group?

At this stage, we simply ask that you participate actively or passively, in the things that interest you. For example, if you're not able to attend an event live, watch the recording when you get a chance. In both cases, share feedback! You're not expected to share personal military experiences, but you are encouraged to use those general experiences to help our community of veterans and allies.
