[Podcast] How Unite Us Helps Veterans And At-Risk Community Members Access Health Services

Today’s guest is Dan Brillman, co-founder and CEO of Unite Us. Dan is a Yale graduate who, after starting a career in finance, he joined the Air Force Reserves as a pilot. After several combat deployments, Dan realized the transition for veterans back into the civilian life was not as seamless as it should be. This inspired him to create a company that addresses the existing gap.

Unite Us is a platform that acts as a conduit between health care entities and community-based organizations. By utilizing electronic referral services, Unite Us aims to improve access to services for groups that need it most.
