VA to host town hall Tuesday at Bay West

All veterans and families invited

IRON MOUNTAIN — The Oscar G. Johnson VA Medical Center invites veterans, their families and friends, and the general public to participate in a Veteran Town Hall set for 5 p.m. Tuesday in Fornetti Hall at Bay College West, 2801 North U.S. 2 in Iron Mountain.

For those that are unable to come in person, the town hall also will be streamed live on the Oscar G. Johnson VA Medical Center’s Facebook page and the video posted later for viewing.

“This town hall is not limited to those who use our services. We welcome any veterans and their families who may not be enrolled in VA health care to come and learn about its services and benefits,” said Brad Nelson, public affairs officer at the Iron Mountain-based VA Medical Center.

Leaders from the VA Medical Center, Michigan Veterans Affairs Agency, and area county veterans service officers will be on hand to provide a presentation on VA’s new initiatives and programs, such as VA’s new Whole Health Program and answer any questions regarding VA health care.

“For those already enrolled and using VA health care, it will provide them the opportunity to learn about services they were not aware of and to provide us feedback on the care we provide,” Nelson said.
