Rep. Zeldin Speaks at 4th Annual Joseph P. Dwyer Veterans Peer Support Project Day of Wellness
Center Moriches, NY - On Saturday, June 10, 2017, Congressman Lee Zeldin (R, NY-1) spoke at the 4th Annual Joseph P. Dwyer Veterans Peer Support Project Day of Wellness in Center Moriches. While serving in the NYS Senate, Congressman Zeldin created the Dwyer Program, a peer-to-peer support program for veterans suffering from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI); named in honor of PFC Joseph Dwyer, a fallen service member from Mt. Sinai. As part of this program, the Day of Wellness is a free event for veterans and their families to enjoy activities and connect with health practitioners. In Congress, Rep. Zeldin has reintroduced his legislation to expand the Dwyer Program to the national level (H.R. 897).
