WHAT:
After a six month development effort to build the region’s first care coordination technology platform designed specifically for military and veterans and their families, the Vets Care Coordination Steering Committee with support from 2-1-1 San Diego is formally launching “SD United” on Monday, February 6, 2017.

WHY:

The goal of SD United is to build and maintain with quality and efficiency a trusted Care Coordination system that results in long-lasting and impactful results and easy access for our military, veterans and their families.
