Why the number 88?
In Nebraska Police Code, “Signal 88” means “situation secure.” 88MED is a sister company of 88 Tactical, which was founded by Shea Degan. Degan has had a career in law enforcement for over 20 years. Just as the name “88 Tactical” speaks to the mission to help individuals develop the skills and confidence they need to handle any situation or crisis, the name “88MED” embodies the mission to empower individuals to find the healthiest and happiest version of themselves.
Shea and his partners decided to team up with one of the best in the business – Dr. Darin Jackson. Dr. Jackson’s formal training in emergency medicine and history of combat service in the Army made him a natural addition to the team. Like Dr. Jackson, Degan became passionate about hormone replacement therapy after first being a patient himself. After discovering the life-improving benefits firsthand, Degan and his 88 Tactical partners set out to serve the community in a new way.
