WHO: Open to all Veterans and their friends and families.
WHEN:  Sunday, November 11, 2012, 9 a.m. – Noon
WHERE: Galveston VA Outpatient Clinic, 3828 Avenue N, Galveston, TX 77550
INFORMATION:   “As a VA health care provider, I know many Veterans face hardships not only with their health, but in everyday life,” said Nurse Practitioner Rosalinda Morales, Ph.D. “It saddens me to know there are many excellent agencies and resources available on the Island for our Veterans, but they go unused because people do not know about them or how to find them.”
   According to the 2010 U.S. Census, Galveston County was home to 23,437 Veterans, while Texas had approximately 1.6 million Veterans residing in the state.
  For more information about this event, please contact Rosalinda Morales, PHD, NP at 409-761-3200 or 409-925-1010. For more information about VA services, please visit or contact the Galveston VA Outpatient Clinic at 409-761-3200.
