Brigadier General (Ret.) Loree Sutton, MD serves as the founding Commissioner for New York City’s Department of Veterans’ Services (DVS). Formally established in 2016 under Mayor Bill de Blasio’s leadership, DVS is the nation’s first municipal-level agency devoted solely to improving the lives of veterans and their families. Privileged to stand up the City of New York’s newest agency, Sutton regards veterans and their families as the nation’s leading renewable natural resource, whose continued service enriches civic life on the home front and beyond.
A career Army psychiatrist, Sutton seeks to demonstrate the essential role of community as the front line of hope and healing, guiding veterans and their families in their journey from ‘doing better’ to actually ‘getting better’ – at home, work, school and life. Resilient communities build safety nets for providing support and serve as springboards for launching goals. This ‘whole health’ approach – incorporating peer support; faith, arts and culture; holistic services; and clinical treatment – lays the foundation for success by restoring trust and overcoming stigma.
Blessed to live and serve in the world’s greatest city, Sutton and her spouse Laurie share their home with beloved Moxie, their 8 pound, adorably mischievous and forever feisty, long-haired piebald dapple dachshund . . . Together, they have found purpose, community and acceptance– in a word, they are home at last.
This event is hosted by Past President Niall O'Leary.
