NYSHealth invites you to attend the first of a new webinar series, Practically Speaking: Connecting Veterans to Resources During COVID-19 on May 27, 11:30am-12pm, that will share practical ideas for adapting to better serve New Yorkers during the COVID-19 pandemic. This first session will focus on New York’s veteran community.
The pandemic has created a perfect storm of circumstances that has placed vulnerable communities at even higher risk. Military veterans and their families are one of these key demographics. Countless people and organizations have stepped up to provide resources for veterans in need, but much more still needs to be done.
Attend this webinar discussion with Colonel (Ret.) Jim McDonough, Director of New York State’s Division of Veterans’ Services, to learn more about the State’s efforts to combat the growing pandemic, what veterans service organizations can do to help, and what resources are currently available to the veteran community. This 30-minute webinar will feature a short discussion followed by audience Q&A.
