The Monroe County Veterans Affairs Department staff will be present to provide additional services and guidance at two upcoming town hall meetings being held by the Department of Veterans Affairs/Miami Veterans Affairs Healthcare System.
The first meeting will be Thursday, Nov. 14 at 1 p.m. at Murray Nelson Government Center in Key Largo and the second meeting will be held Friday, Nov. 15 at 10 a.m. at Harvey Government Center in Key West.
The town hall is for Monroe County veteran clients, military service members and the public. There will be an update about VA services and statistics and an opportunity for public comment. The meetings will identify eligibility for community care, who the providers are in Monroe County and the efforts to increase providers in the county, and new legislation impacts for veterans.
“Monroe County veterans, dependents, surviving spouses, VA and non-VA client medical providers have an opportunity to speak directly with the top leadership from the Miami VA Hospital,” said Cathy Crane, Director of Monroe County Veterans Affairs. “Every year, the Miami VA and Monroe County co-host this town hall meeting to provide an opportunity for Florida Keys veterans to have questions answered.”
