Veterans and Healthcare: Melani Gonzalez & Mae Weathersby
Our veterans serve nobly and without thinking about what’s in it for them. And while service does come with certain benefits, like educational opportunities via the GI Bill, it also comes with unique challenges. One of those challenges is navigating the healthcare landscape and the often-complex VA Hospital system.
On this episode, we’re joined by Melani Gonzalez and Mae Weathersby. Melani is the Chief Marketing Officer and Mae is the Chief Clinical Officer for Vibra Hospital of Richardson and Vibra Specialty Hospital of DeSoto.
Melani and Mae are also both veterans, having served in the United States Army. These veterans discuss their time in the service and how it ultimately led them to a career in healthcare. Melani and Mae also discuss the challenges veterans face when it comes to healthcare. Additionally, they share some of the healthcare options that veterans may not know are available to them.
