Overton Brooks VA Medical Center will host a Town Hall and Outreach event on Tuesday, August 11, 5-6PM, at the main facility, 510 E. Stoner Ave. The Town Hall will take place in the Education Center pm the second floor.

Veterans and their families, congressional and senatorial stakeholders, veteran service organizations, local media partners and other organizations in our community are invited to attend.
