Dr. John Holcomb and Dr. Red Duke, trauma surgeons at UTHealth Medical School and Memorial Hermann-Texas Medical Center, worked with the Texas Medical Center to develop a program focused on hiring veterans at institutions throughout the Texas Medical Center. This program, called "Hiring Red, White and You!" helps veterans overcome biases and roadblocks and assimilate into the civilian job market.
As military veterans, Drs. Duke and Holcomb are well aware of challenges facing our veterans. Numerous TMC member institutions have joined the initiative in order to help veterans transfer the skills, knowledge and abilities developed in the armed forces to jobs in healthcare.
