New Tool Will Highlight Military Caregiver Gaps

October 24, 2019

A new interactive map will help emphasize the needs of military caregivers across the U.S. The Elizabeth Dole Foundation previewed the map this week, according to Military.com.
The map analyzes publicly available data to understand the challenges military veteran caregivers face and where their needs can be better met.
“The issues they are facing are much more acute than the civilian caregivers,” said Steve Schwab, the foundation’s CEO.
The tool was created by Booz Allen Hamilton.
