ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

The Carl Vinson VA Medical Center hosts an outreach event at the Walter H. Burt American Legion Post 30 at 2916 Gillionville Road, Albany,  Tuesday, June 17 from 12:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.

The event is intended to help orient veterans about the move of the Albany VA clinic from its current site to its new location in the Navy clinic on the Albany Marine Corps Logistics Base.

The event will give existing and prospective VA patients a chance to learn more about the move and get information on available VA services and programs.

"They'll have more services.  Eyeglasses, hearing aids, podiatry, psychiatry, physical therapy.  A few things they have to go to Dublin for now, they won't have to go," said Nick Nicholson, American Legion Post 30 Finance Officer.

The director of the Dublin VA Medical Center will take part in that session Tuesday afternoon at the American Legion Post on Gillionville Road.

VA and Marine Corps staff will be on hand to address questions about base access, security, and answer other questions.

Information on services will be provided, including clinical services, weight management, homelessness and suicide prevention, and enrollment and eligibility.

Medical staff will be available to check vital signs such as blood pressure.
