DALLAS, May 20, 2016– Sodexo, world leader in Quality of Life Services and one of the largest healthcare technology management companies, is partnering with Medisend, a Dallas-based educational institute that provides critical education and training in healthcare technology management (HTM), to support the General Richard B.

In support of this program, Sodexo has developed professional workshops to help participating veterans develop the business and leadership skills important to success in a clinical environment. The workshops combine observation and practical learning to expose the veteran technicians to industry expectations and the Sodexo culture of building talent and resources.
“Medisend is grateful to Sodexo for this unique addition to the General Richard B. Myers Veterans Program and the opportunities this partnership offers our veterans. We are truly appreciative of the talent and resources that Sodexo is sharing with our veterans and for the dedication of Sodexo representatives in spending so much meaningful time in this endeavor,” said Medisend President and CEO Nick Hallack.
