Overton Brooks VA Medical Center has planned to host a Town Hall and outreach event on October 19 at the Longview Community Based Outpatient Clinic on 1005 Eastman Road.

OBVAMC is inviting veterans and their families, congressional and senatorial stakeholders, Veteran Service Organizations and other community organizations.

The Town Hall will be an open forum where hospital leaders will listen to the thoughts, concerns and ideas from local veterans.

OBVAMC intends that the meeting will be an opportunity to strengthen their commitment to make sure veterans, families and other people they service have a chance to share their experiences, both positive and negative.

VA Outreach services and representatives from special programs will also be there to help veterans to include VA health care enrollment and eligibility, VA benefits and help with claims, patient advocate services and more.

If you want to find out more, call Mary K. Gominger, the OBVAMC Public Affairs Officer, at 318-990-5571.
