"Every organization working with the Federal government should support this event. The National Disabled Winter Sports Clinic is an excellent opportunity for us to assist America's wounded warriors," said Mac Curtis, President and CEO of Vangent, Inc. "Through our continued partnership and the personal commitment of our employee volunteers, we are able to help provide critically needed rehabilitation services for these injured veterans, aiding them on their road to recovery. It's just one of several ways we honor the sacrifice of our service members at home and abroad."
The activities offered at the National Disabled Winter Sports Clinic are both challenging and stimulating, including adaptive Alpine and Nordic skiing, rock climbing, snowmobiling, curling, and sled hockey. The U.S. military service veterans who will take on the challenge all currently receive care at a Department of Veterans medical facility and suffer from traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, orthopedic amputations, visual impairments, neurological problems, and other disabilities. Event participants will receive assistance from 13 Vangent employees, who will serve as volunteers.
Vangent's ongoing support of the National Disabled Winter Sports Clinic demonstrates its dedication to improving the care of wounded warriors and dovetails with the company's longstanding engagement with the Military Health System (MHS). Vangent provides mission-critical services and support for several health initiatives within the Department of Defense, including the Traumatic Brain Injury and Behavioral Health Clinical Data Documentation solutions for the MHS, Common User Database for the Force Health Protection & Readiness Program, and E-Commerce Operational System Support for the TRICARE Management Activity.
