WakeMed Honors Veterans

Tomorrow, the WakeMed Diversity & Inclusion Council will honor the men and women who have served our country in the armed forces.  And, we would like to cordially invite Veterans to join us.

We has identified more than 320 WakeMed employees, physicians and volunteer veterans who have served or are currently serving in the United States Armed Service.  Our program on Raleigh Campus will include remarks by WakeMed President and CEO Dr. Bill Atkinson and Colonel Elizabeth D. Austin, the highest ranking female officer in the North Carolina Army National Guard.  Additionally, the WakeMed Honor Guard (Campus Police & Public Safety staff) will be participating, along with the WakeMed Chorus.
