Inspired by her military family, our KNX Hero of the Week spends her days helping veterans

Long Beach, Calif. (KNX) - Dr. Laura Held has family members across several generations who have served our country. She uses this inspiration from her family to help veterans live better lives.

Dr. Held is the Clinical Informatics Officer at the VA Hospital in Long Beach - a fancy title that, in short, means she's a leader: helping with data programming, electronic records, telehealth, and "My Healthe Vet."

"My Healthe Vet" is an application vterans can use to look at their medical records online. Dr. Held tells KNX News reporter Heather Jordan that her team recently added an AI integration to help them stay at the forefront of VA needs.

Her dedication to the veteran community and the team at the VA Hospital in Long Beach, make Dr. Laura Held our KNX Hero of the Week!
