Never underestimate the power of word-of-mouth.
National Guard Veteran Jonathan Hinker and his wife Jacqui are transforming Veterans’ lives in rural southern New Jersey by spreading the news about virtual health. Veterans in these communities can use Connected Care tools to avoid long drives to the nearest VA medical center for certain appointments.
Jonathan, Commander of the Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) Post 6257, and Jacqui, the post’s Auxiliary President and a VA employee, offer regular VA Video Connect and My HealtheVet training sessions to Veterans following meetings.
“These technologies are life-changing for Veterans. Why would I not share them with my fellow Veterans?” Jonathan said. “It’s all about education — just getting them to sit down and see that it works.”
