WestCare Pacific Islands will be hosting its Annual Veterans Health Conference and Behavioral Health Summit on Friday, Aug. 31, 2018 from 8:00AM to 5:00PM at the Guam Museum in Hagåtña. This year, we’re highlighting the urgency and importance of veterans being aware of the benefits of healthy lifestyles and access to services. As in previous conferences, the event will bring together service providers and community advocates who work with and on behalf of our veterans and their families. Presentations will be focused on promoting positive and healthy activities that will result in longer, happier and productive lives. We also recognize veterans over 80 years old who are healthy active members in their families and our community.
The event is a partnership with WestCare Pacific Islands, the Office of Congresswoman Madeleine Bordallo and the Hawaii Regional Office on Veterans Homelessness in Hawaii. This is truly the only gathering that focuses on promoting positive healthy lifestyles specifically for veterans on our island and in our region of Micronesia. We will also partner with the behavioral health directors from Guam and the region to elicit input on the state of affairs of health issues of homeless veterans and strategies to address these challenges. This event was made possible through the generous contributions of Bank of Guam and Guam Visitors Buereau.
