Dr. Lisa Brannack, DNP, FNP-BC, JD, MPH, MADR - Created a Military Culture Awareness program for VA health providers with one goal in mind: to increase awareness of Veteran culture by teaching Veteran Identity and Veteran Core Values. VA primary care providers must first understand Veterans as a ‘group, to really engage the veteran patient. When primary care providers listen to, understand, and know their Veteran patients, this facilitates trust within the Veteran-patient health relationship. Only with Veteran trust comes meaningful communications and a rewarding healthcare relationship. Dr. Brannack has a passion to help her fellow Veterans receive the medical care they’ve earned through their military service. She'll present on "Understanding how Veteran identity and veteran core values impacts the veteran health experience"
