Apex Dermatology - Chelsea sits down and talks to Dr. Jorge Garcia-Zuazaga about the new Purple Heart Project at Apex Dermatology. Dr. Garcia, who is a Veteran himself, has found a way to combine his two passions of dermatology and military service. As a result, The Purple Heart Project was born.  The project offers free scar revisions to Veterans injured in active duty. Dr. Garcia explains how this can help heal more than just the skin, and can go a long way to improving confidence and happiness for deserving Veterans.
