Health Net Federal Services, LLC, is slated to serve as a sponsor of the 28th National Disabled Veterans Winter Sports Clinic in Snowmass Village, Colo, March 30 to April 4. Health Net Federal Services is a wholly owned subsidiary of Health Net.
A news release from Health Net reports that the annual event is intended to provide winter sports instruction to veterans with conditions that include traumatic brain injuries (TBIs), spinal cord injuries (SCIs), orthopedic amputations, visual impairments, and certain neurological conditions.
“…. We are proud to be part of an event that fosters courage and confidence in veterans with disabilities. We salute the spirit and determination of these veterans as they demonstrate that having a disability is not an obstacle to an active and rewarding life,” says Tom Carrato, president, Health Net Federal Services.
The release reports that the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) and the Disabled American Veterans sponsor the clinic. The clinic is open to US military veterans with traumatic injuries and other disabilities who receive care at a VA medical facility or military treatment facility. More than 400 veteran athletes are expected to attend, Health Net says, and will participate in a range of workshops and educational sessions designed to positively impact their rehabilitative journey and readjustment in their communities.
