Health centers serve over 350,000 veterans. This session provides both policy and program updates for those seeking to serve veteran patients. Hear the latest federal updates on Mission Act/Community Care Network implementation, following the 2018 transition from the Veterans Choice Program administered by the US Department of Veterans Affairs at hundreds of health centers. Participants will also learn about creative programs serving veterans at health centers locally; and engage with peers and panelists to inspire their next steps to serve veterans in their communities.
