Syracuse University and National Nonprofits Partner to Bring First Virtual Reality System to Syracuse Veterans Affairs Medical Center

A unique partnership involving Syracuse University, the Syracuse Veterans Affairs Medical Center and two national nonprofits—Operation Hat Trick, which generates awareness and support for the recovery of wounded service members and veterans through branded merchandise sales, and SoldierStrong—has resulted in the donation of a groundbreaking virtual reality system to treat veterans experiencing post-traumatic stress. The Syracuse donation is the first of its kind in the country.

“We’ve been honored to help Operation Hat Trick serve so many veterans through our co-branding agreement, but it’s an exceptional thing to see it result in a donation to the local Syracuse community,” says Rachel Duffy, Syracuse University’s director of trademark licensing. “It’s a moment that should make the University’s many supporters proud.”
