Representatives from the Department of Veteran’s Affairs (DVA) came to share information about how they are helping veteran’s thrive! Sandra Robertson, Patient Centered Care Coordinator, talked about Patient Centered Care, the new focus that the DVA has taken to provide veterans with the health related support they need, and a variety of healing modalities that compliment western medicine, such as tai chi, pet therapy, mindfulness based stress reduction, yoga, drum circles etc. Alisa Donner, Health Promotion and Disease Prevention Manager discussed Patient Aligned Care Teams (PACT), a new health care delivery system that provides veterans with their own “team” for health promotion. Callie Wight, Women Veterans Program Manager highlighted the issues that women vets experience and the services offered to this fast growing population of veterans.
