    Hi Allison,
    Thank you for your work with our veterans. I am moved by your words and experiences you have shared using DMT as a healing approach. I am a first year graduate student at Pratt Institute studying DMT. I came across your work while researching a shared passion – DMT with veterans in New York.
    I am reaching out to say thank you for your work and ask you for any advice in taking iinitiative to facilitate more DMT with veterans in the NY tri-state area.

    • Thank you for your kind words Shelby. I started my work with Veterans at the Bronx, NY VA. Each VA has a volunteer department, which can be a place to start. You can also keep an eye on openings for DMT’s in all Federal positions on Enjoy Pratt and good luck on your efforts to provide DMT to our Veterans! Feel free to reach out with any other questions.
