Operation Life Transformed Name Changing to Military to Medicine

Please visit:  www.militarytomedicine.org 

Operation Life Transformed (OLT) has joined forces with Inova Health System to form Military to Medicine, a program that provides online healthcare training and employment opportunities for military spouses, wounded warriors and their caregivers, Veterans, National Guard, Reserve and their spouses, and service members transitioning to civilian employment.

OLT has been working cooperatively on the pilot Military to Medicine program since February 2009. Our two organizations share a similar military family mission and found that working together the training and outreach opportunities were strengthened and military families were better served. Today, Military to Medicine provides  healthcare training and placement opportunities in portable healthcare careers that readily “fit” the military lifestyle.

Military to Medicine has seen tremendous growth and support from the military community including the Department of Defense, The Department of Labor and the U.S. Army and the Army Spouse Employment Partnership. It also has received support from other healthcare systems including the Cleveland Clinic, Sharp Healthcare, Wellstar Healthcare and the Department of Veterans Affairs’ Veterans’ Health Administration. As a not for profit organization, Military to Medicine has gained support from philanthropic entities like Cisco Systems Foundation, Elks Lodge, the Dallas and San Antonio TRIAD, and the Claude Moore Foundation.

Operation Life Transformed would like to thank you for your support in the past and we look forward to serving our military family communities under the new name Military to Medicine.

Please check out our new Web site at www.militarytomedicine.org and be sure to join our social networking site that is linked there, too. We look forward to hearing from you!

  Sincerely,

 The Military to Medicine Team
