The General Richard B. Myers Veterans Biomedical Technology Program Receives Bank of America Grant to Help Provide Veterans a Pathway to Employment

The Bank of America Charitable Foundation has awarded a grant to the General Richard B. Myers Veterans Biomedical Technology Program to help provide veterans a pathway to employment and successful careers in healthcare. On Wednesday, May 4th, Rick Bridwell, Bank of America Market Executive, presented a $20,000 check to Nick Hallack, President and CEO of Medisend, parent organization and home of the General Myers Veterans Program.

“The General Myers Program aligns perfectly with Bank of America’s focus on workforce development and education, and our initiative to help veterans become permanently employed in good jobs with career advancement opportunities,” says Gillian Breidenbach, Senior Vice President and the Local Market Development Manager for North Texas, “BOA is proud to invest in a stable future for these deserving young men and women.”

The General Richard B. Myers Program educates and trains veterans to manage diagnostic and therapeutic medical equipment for hospitals, manufacturers and service providers in a five-month “bootcamp” program that prepares them for positions as professional BMET technicians. Classes take place in new classrooms and state-of-the-art training laboratories at Medisend’s campus located in North Dallas. Veterans also benefit from Medisend’s industry partnerships that provide workshops, and seminars in leadership, as well as job opportunities. Graduates of the Myers Program are currently employed at organizations such as Baylor, Scott and White Health, Becton-Dickenson, VHA, DaVita, and the US military.

“We are proud to serve as a career pathway for our veterans, and at the same time fill a very real skills gap in our communities. The General Myers Program offers superior training and assistance in job placement for veterans, benefiting healthcare employers and patients with professional excellence and passion to serve. We thank Bank of America for supporting us in this mission,” says Hallack.
