Fayetteville VA Coastal Health Care System
VA Coming to Brunswick Community College
November 22, 2010
Veterans at Brunswick Community College area can enroll in the VA health care system, receive health screenings and 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 College Day activities on campus on Thursday, Dec. 2 from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. The team consists of nurses who will be conducting health screenings, a nurse educator who can provide materials and discuss such issues as diabetes management and tips on controlling hypertension and cholesterol levels, and pharmacists who can answer pharmacy related questions and review medications with individuals. A social worker will be available to discuss resources for Veterans in the local community and through the VA Health System, and an eligibility and enrollment specialist will be on-hand to discuss VA health benefits and accept Veterans' enrollments on the spot.
Anybody who has served in the U.S. military is invited to attend this event. Veterans are encouraged to bring a copy of their DD Form 214 (discharge paperwork) and last year's financial information to expedite enrollment in the system. Also, you can bring a list of your medications if you'd like to speak with the pharmacists about them.
