On Feb. 28, Charleston VAMC’s Trident VA Outpatient Clinic will host their first annual Veteran Health Fair from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the clinic located at 9237 University Blvd., North Charleston.
Informational booths provided at the health fair will include the following VA services: Eligibility and Enrollment, Mental Health, Suicide Prevention, MOVE! Dietitians, Pharmacy, Transitional Care Management, Patient Advocates, Charleston Vet Center, the Minority Veteran Program, and MyHealtheVet. Community organization like Project Healing Waters Fly Fishing and the Department of Natural Resources will also be in attendance. VA nurses will be providing on-site blood pressure checks and flu shots.
“We see this as a great opportunity to integrate the community and our VA clinic,” said Jamie Robinson, Trident VA Outpatient Clinic LPN and one of the organizers of the health fair. “We want to let Veterans know what is available to them and give them the opportunity to enroll if they haven’t yet. Our clinic serves about 10,000 Lowcountry Veterans, but we know there are more in the area we can help.”
This event is open to all Veterans and on-site parking is available.
