"Time and time again I've realized you need to think out of the box if you want to address big issues, and as a solutions company, Spartan Medical is using its collective brain power to help our VA clinicians improve veteran health and wellbeing. In honor of my late brother Gregory Proffitt, we formed the Proffitt Brothers Foundation to support charitable causes focused on veteran needs. By collaborating with Tangelo, a like-mined organization whose mission is to provide access and affordability to the foundational resources people need to live their lives to the fullest potential, we knew our combined teams and aligned goals could positively impact the lives of our fellow veterans."
