Veterans Spotlight:

To help its nearly 250 student-veterans, Monroe College is hosting a Department of Veteran Affairs mobile vet center on its Bronx campus one day a week. The mobile unit is equipped with confidential counseling space and a state of the art communication package to enable veterans to receive in-person and telehealth medical care and treatment, as well as family support, mental health counseling, substance abuse assessment and referral, and VA benefits explanation and referral, among other comprehensive programs and services.

If you have a Veterans program you would like to share, please contact Deborah Fasser dfasser@corningplace.com or Donna Stelling-Gurnett dgurnett@apc-colleges.org.
