Veteran health issues are front and center for Gillian. From the G.I. Bill to the VA, Dr. Battino will protect veteran’s rights and ensure that veteran’s services work for our changing veteran population.
That includes aging and injured veterans who need prompt, quality health care, and young veterans who need mental health care or are looking to translate the skills they learned from their service into a good-paying job.
Gillian will work closely with veteran service organizations and groups to ensure that our retiring service members have access to educational opportunities, employment, first-class health care and rehabilitation services. Having worked within the VA system, Dr. Battino understands the issues at play. She believes the homelessness, addiction issues, and the loss of even one veteran to suicide is a national disgrace. It is our responsibility to ensure that those who have protected us are protected themselves.
