** Veterans Town Hall Meeting - Coeru d'Alene, Idaho - Thursday, August 30, 2018 - Coeur d'Alene Public Library Community Room (lower level) at 702 E. Front Ave. in beautiful downtown Coeur d'Alene. Open to the public, Veterans Town Hall meetings are for Veterans and stakeholders to meet and hear from new Mann-Grandstaff VAMC Director - Dr. Robert J. Fischer and members of his leadership team. If it seems MGVAMC has been hosting a lot of Veterans Town Hall meetings, we have! That's because MGVAMC is excited about VA's work with the Department of Defense and the Cerner Corporation to transform and modernize VA's Electronic Health Record! MGVAMC will share some exciting news about that and much more - including how MGVAMC is already helping Veterans navigate their Care in the Community (CITC), updates on new Mental Health Initiatives (including MGVAMC's upcoming annual Mental Health Summit - scheduled for August 28th in Spokane - at Gonzaga University).
