The Sergeant Sullivan Center Launches a Multimedia Awareness Campaign, Using Real Stories of Sick Veterans to Make the Case for Better Healthcare
Date:8/29/2013

Washington, DC (PRWEB) August 29, 2013

Through videos, podcasts, and narratives published in the multimedia campaign, The Sergeant Sullivan Center makes the case that Veterans struggling with post-deployment illnesses require innovative healthcare centers that will provide effective diagnosis and treatment for unique conditions. Veterans, military families, caregivers, advocates, and researchers are encouraged to contribute stories of their struggles with post-deployment illnesses by sending an email to start the dialogue to info(at)sgtsullivancenter.org.

Consider the story of Captain Rebecca Selby. Captain Selby, after a few months working at Bagram Air Field in Afghanistan, became sick with digestive problems, rashes, and pain that made it difficult for her to walk. These illnesses persist and have worsened since her return, but there is no effective healthcare available to her. More of Captain Selby's story is available on The SSC podcast.

The Sergeant Sullivan Center (SSC), named for a Marine who fell to post-deployment illnesses, begins with the story of one man and connects his story with hundreds of thousands of veterans just like him, who return from war with serious bodily diseases. These post-deployment illnesses create a health crisis for our returning Veterans, and The Sergeant Sullivan Center is dedicated to getting them the healthcare they need.

The SSC publishes real stories post-deployment illnesses to help policy makers and philanthropists understand the need to develop innovative, effective healthcare for those suffering from post-deployment diseases for which existing treatments are insufficient. Veterans, military families, caregivers, advocates, and researchers are encouraged to contribute stories of their efforts to confront post-deployment illnesses by sending an email to info(at)sgtsullivancenter.org.

About the Sergeant Sullivan Center. Founded in 2010 by the family of a Marine who fell to post-deployment illnesses, The Sergeant Sullivan Center is a 501 (c) (3) nonprofit organization dedicated to improving health outcomes for current and former military personnel, especially those who are suffering from emerging, complicated, or currently unexplained post-deployment health concerns, through awareness, research, and connection. More information is available on the organization website. http://www.sgtsullivancenter.org.
