“We are honored to welcome such a force and advocate for wounded warriors, veterans, and those with disabilities to help further the mission of MedTechVets,”said Capt. Derek Herrera, UCMC (Ret.) of Gadson’s new appointment.
Col. Gregory Gadson is a graduate of the United States Military Academy at West Point and served as an Army officer for 25 years. Greg served in every major conflict of the past two decades, including Operations Desert Shield/Storm in Kuwait; Operation Joint Forge in Bosnia-Herzegovina; Operation Enduring Freedom in Afghanistan and Operation Iraqi Freedom. In 2007, during combat operations in Iraq an improvised explosive device (IED) cost him both legs above the knees and normal use of his right arm and hand. Since his injury, he has served as Director of the United States Army Wounded Warrior Program and founded a management consulting business, Patriot Strategies, LLC. Gadson’s experience as a wounded warrior that successfully transitioned back into the civilian workforce will serve as a great resource for fellow wounded veteran MedTechVets members who face unique challenges.
“I am excited to be a part of an organization that is adapting its programs virtually to meet the needs of transitioning service members. The Academy and MedTech Conference will help MedTechVets (formerly MVPvets) in its mission to connect military veterans with engaged mentors and careers in the medical device and life science industries,”said Col. Gregory Gadson
