Event description

Description

The Yates House for Military Veterans, Inc, presents its first Annual "FREE" Women Veterans Health Symposium and Spa Day. This is a "FREE" and INVITE ONLY event.

All registered female veterans will receive:

  • Medical advice and answers to your individual questions from a panel of medical experts,

  • Medical consultations from highly qualified physicians, dentists, and clinicians (i.e., OBGYN, Cardiologist, Psychologist, Oral Hygiene Dentists, and other Health Care Professionals).

  • "FREE" health screenings: Blood Pressure, Diabetes, and Dental examination and cleaning.

This event is being supported by the American Red Cross who will be providing support by conducting their "Mind, Body & Soul" workshop. This workshop helps veterans, their spouses, caretakers, and children, to address and manage their respective stress, communication, medical and mental health challenges.

Additionally, the VA-Newark Regional Office will provide claims and benefits reviews and information to every registered female veteran in attendance. Also, the Vet Center (Secaucus) will be providing support by conducting information sessions. These sessions will assist you navigating the VHA services (treatment and/or referrals made to the "Choice Program") that are designed to help veterans address and manage respective medical and mental health challenges. In addition, there will be expert health providers present from AmeriHealth, Horizon Health, United Healthcare, Wellcare and Zufall Health for dental coverage.
