Lucile Burgo-Black, MD: Beyond the Perception - Integrating Health Care for Veterans


Registration now open!


I am an Internist who volunteers overseas and served as a General Medical Officer at Camp Lejeune during Operation Iraqi Freedom. It’s important for all healthcare providers to attend the Women Executives in Healthcare event. We all have a responsibility to assist our Veterans and their families by providing and coordinating the proper care, treatment and resources to make their lives whole again. This program will bring an awareness to the provider community to take action and Stand Up.

Erin Blatchley | Co-Speaker

Dr. Burgo-Black is the National Co-Director of the Post Deployment Integrated Care Initiative. She will share existing system wide challenges and the benefit of health care integration and continuity of care for veterans. Hear what role and benefits providers and payers may play in assimilating our veterans back into their families, the workplace, society and life.  As health care executives, learn about the resources available to better equip us to deal with their health issues.

Erin Blatchley graduated with a BS in Nursing from Southern Connecticut State University and a MS in Health Care Management from Rensselaer. She has worked in the nursing profession for more than 35 years. Erin has worked for the Veterans Administration since 2003 as a home care nurse and case manager. In 2007, she was promoted to the new position of Transition and Care Management Program Manager. In this new position, she developed and continues to manage the Transition and Combat Veteran program for the VA Connecticut Healthcare System.
