Despite physical and mental health challenges stemming from his time in the military, Gavin Walters, MSW ’20, is now thriving as director of a veterans program in two counties in New York state and facilitator of a coalition that covers the entire state. Adelphi’s Hudson Valley Center—and an exceptionally dedicated professor—made a life-changing difference for Walters.
