SMPH and UW Health Military Service Member Employee Resource Group honors veterans on Veterans Day

Every Nov. 11, Americans celebrate Veterans Day to honor the more than 19.5 million heroes who have served in the U.S. military. At SMPH and UW Health, one of the ways we appreciate and support veterans is through the Military Service Members Employee Resource Group. This group provides a space to come together as a community and it provides a network of support for our military service members and families.

This year, in honor of Veterans Day on Nov. 11, at 11 a.m., members of the Military Service Member Employee Resource Group will participate in a flag raising ceremony at the main entrance of University Hospital.

Did you know? This group is open to new members and meets on the fourth Thursday of each month.
