            Veterans in the Shallotte community can enroll in the VA health care system, receive health information, and find out about various services available to them through the Veterans Health Administration from representatives of the Fayetteville VA Medical Center.
           The center’s Rural Health Team will be set up at the Shallotte Presbyterian Church, 5070 M.H. Rourk Drive, Shallotte, NC  28470 on Friday, July 20, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.  The health team consists of a nurse educator who can provide materials and discuss such issues as diabetes management and tips on controlling hypertension and cholesterol levels.  An eligibility and enrollment specialist will be on-hand to discuss VA health benefits and accept Veterans’ enrollments on site.  Information about women’s health care, mental health care and other specialty care and programs for Veterans will also be available.
