Dr. Jesse Ehrenfeld Appointed by Gov. Evers to Blue Ribbon Commission on Veteran Opportunity
Milwaukee, April 28, 2022 – Jesse Ehrenfeld, MD, MPH, professor of anesthesiology, director of the Advancing a Healthier Wisconsin Endowment and senior associate dean, has been appointed by Wisconsin Gov. Tony Evers to a Blue Ribbon Commission on Veteran Opportunity. His appointment begins May 4.
The commission is charged with developing comprehensive, long-term efforts to support Wisconsin’s more than 300,000 veterans and address challenges they may face like the increased risk for economic and housing insecurity, mental and behavioral health needs, and substance use disorders.
“When I created this commission, I said it would have the very intentional involvement of veterans and their families and I am glad to make these appointments today to ensure that is the case,” said Gov. Evers. “I have no doubt the folks on this commission will serve the veterans of Wisconsin well, using their own lived experiences and insights to inform and guide this important work.”
Dr. Ehrenfeld served in Afghanistan during both Operating Enduring Freedom and Resolute Support Mission to care for servicemembers wounded in combat.
