Senator Bennet holds “Connect to Thrive” Veterans’ Conference at UCCS
U.S. Senator Michael Bennet held the second veterans’ conference at UCCS on September 1. The “Connect to Thrive” event was a follow up to a 2011 conference, which resulted in the “Better Serving Those Who Have Served” report. The report covered an extensive list of recommendations to make Colorado the best place in the country for veterans to live and work.
The 2015 conference focused on topics such as rural veterans and access to health care, behavioral health, community networking and collaboration, and veterans in transition. UCCS Chancellor Shockley-Zalabak attended this important discussion and made remarks. CU Board of Regents Chair Kyle Hybl also attended this important event.
