Veterans health education is an educational priority for Lunder-Dineen. That includes education for health care professionals on providing optimal care to veterans and their family members, and education on where veterans can gain access to critical resources.
Lunder-Dineen collaborates closely with experts in Maine and beyond to provide access to high-quality veterans health education. We’re also a proud sponsor of Matter of Duty, a documentary from the Maine Public Broadcasting Network on the impact of PTSD.
"Lunder Dineen has truly made an impact upon the lives of Maine's military community through a targeted emphasis on health education."

Lunder-Dineen was a proud sponsor of this powerful documentary that tells the stories of Maine soldiers who were deployed and returned home to face a new, relentless enemy: post-traumatic stress disorder.
Theater of War
Lunder-Dineen is proud to partner with social impact company Outside the Wire to present Theater of War, an innovative public health project that presents readings of ancient Greek plays as a catalyst for an in-depth discussion about post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and the challenges faced by service members and veterans, their families, caregivers, and communities regarding the unspoken psychological impacts of war.
Lunder-Dineen sponsored two Theater of War performances in 2013. The first took place in May at the University of Maine in Orono during the 8th Annual University of Maine Geriatrics Colloquium and featured award-winning actor David Strathairn. The second was held at Portland High School's John Ford Theater in November and featured two-time Emmy award winner Mare Winningham and "The Good Wife's" Zach Grenier.
