Patricia and I spent yesterday with a group of people who are interested in providing care for Veterans. As a Vet, I'm interested in Veterans' care for selfish reasons, but as a telehealth facilitator, I am in a position to do something about it. That's cool. We spoke with representatives from the VA, of course, but also from other organizations that want to help a wide spectrum of people from homeless Vets to wounded Vets to Vets who are dealing with the horrible issues that come along with PTSD. Representatives at the conference were from an equally wide spectrum, ranging from mental health care providers to employment specialists to Native American Vetereans' representatives to faith-based caregivers. And the best part was that we all have one goal in common: to honor and assist those who have put it all on the line for our country. What a great day it was! One of the highlights was the interest in telehealth. The VA is already doing a lot via telehealth, but the possibility of NRTRC's partners throughout the region being able to participate in Veterans' care seems to be a real possibility. Here's hoping for the best!
