The project will create a medical-legal partnership with the local Veterans Administration Vet Center to initiate outreach services into the LGBTQ and Veteran communities so as to identify and support disenfranchised LGBTQ Veterans.  Bob’s fellowship is being sponsored by Greenberg Traurig LLP, a global law firm with offices in Philadelphia, San Francisco and 36 other cities.
