Phoenix, AZ (November 16, 2022) – The Veterans Medical Leadership Council (VMLC) is a non-profit organization providing Arizona Veterans support in three critical areas: assistance in transitioning to civilian life after Service, living essentials including water and power for Veteran members of the Navajo Nation, and mental health support for post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

VMLC supports Veterans registered for services through the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) and receives referrals of Veterans whose individual needs and requirements exceed VA, State of Arizona, and other state and federal services.

“TriWest has been a proud supporter of the Veterans Medical Leadership Council for a number of years and its mission of honoring and serving Veterans living in Arizona,” said Glenn Gray, Director of Customer Care and Community Relations at TriWest Healthcare Alliance (TriWest). “Through a partnership with VA social workers, VMLC helps identify Veterans who have emergency financial needs, and also identifies underserved populations like Veterans on the Navajo Nation in northeast Arizona during the peak of COVID.”
