Dear ,

The Veterans Project Informational Conference Calls have officially launched.

We had a small but successful call on Wednesday night with folks eager to start their own clinics in North Carolina, Colorado and California.

Some important points from the call:

Diana Fried (AWB, Executive Director)
  • Recommends consideration of "mobile clinic sites" as a way to get started even when you don't have a venue secured.  Go wherever you can and treat on-site wherever you are able as you put feelers out for a more permanent site (unless you prefer to stay mobile!).
Denise Slavich (Charlotte, NC)
  • Recommends also targeting National Guard, Coast Guard and Reservists; people who did not expect to be on full-time service duty when they signed up
  • Connect with Ombudsman of Vets Associations since they are connected with the families
  • Don't forget to "use the press"!
We will periodically hold these Informational Conference Calls to try and accommodate all schedules so keep an eye out for notices of future dates.

We currently have one more call scheduled on:

    Wednesday September 12
                     5:00pm  Pacific Time

We look forward to hearing from you.  If you have not recieved our information packet we sent out last week with several helpful attachments, then please contact us with a subject line: "Info Please" and we will be sure to get that out to you.
