State Success: NC Veterans Action Leadership Team

As the North Carolina chapters of the National MS Society advocate for MS research funding through the Department of Defense, veterans living with MS in North Carolina have formed the Veterans Action Leadership Team.

VALT is a self-directed group of volunteers and veterans who are working collaboratively to increase awareness about MS and the information and referral resources of the Society, advise the Society on state and federal policies that directly impact veterans living with MS, and recommend outreach and advocacy strategies for the Carolina chapters.

When one veteran read the group's new brochure, he said, “I wish I saw something like this when I was making the transition from active duty to civilian.” Read more about the VALT here.
