The event is a premier opportunity for representatives of the public and private sectors to come together to discuss medical partnerships to benefit our nation's wounded warriors and their families.

Army Colonel David Sutherland, special assistant to the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff for warrior and family support, will provide the symposium's opening keynote address. With deployments to Iraq, Kuwait and Southwest Asia, Sutherland has commanded at all levels from platoon through brigade, including the 1st Cavalry Division's 3rd Heavy Brigade Combat Team. He has been recognized for his work on behalf of wounded warriors and Gold Star families.

Sutherland, along with Army Major John Copeland, authored "Sea of Goodwill: Matching the Donor to the Need," a white paper that seeks to foster better transitional support of veterans and their families as they return to civilian life. The paper highlights the importance of military-civilian collaborations to ensure optimal care for returning servicemen and women. In his keynote, Sutherland will discuss the many emotional and physical challenges facing servicemembers on the battlefield and at home.
