WASHINGTON, DC - U.S. Congressman Kevin Brady (TX-08) is excited to partner with the Bush School of Government and Public Service EMPSA program at Texas A&M on an educational Capstone looking at the Conroe VA Clinic. Capstone is a two-semester required project in which students work collaboratively with a government agency or nonprofit organization to solve a real-world challenge through integrated, team-based, applied research. Led by Dr. Catherine Cole, the Capstone will continue to study issues related to healthcare access, resource allocation, and accountability.

"It's really the culmination of the students' educational experience, where they apply what they have learned in the program. Working with Congressman Brady's office has been particularly meaningful,” said Dr. Cole. “Because of Congressman Brady's dedication to the veterans in his constituency, his office was incredibly involved and supportive in the learning process. It's a win-win arrangement! The students win by working on improving veteran health care, and Congressman Brady receives substantive research and analysis to improve the system."

Instrumental in bringing this clinic to Conroe, Brady is committed to bringing the best health and mental health care to the veterans of the 8th Congressional District.

“These heroes deserve the very best we can offer them and being able to collaborate with the Bush School will help ensure we continue to improve upon the services our veterans receive,” Brady stated. “I hope the experience for the students is life-changing as they see first-hand how their talents and hard work can impact someone’s life.”
