FARGO, N.D. – The Fargo VA Health Care System and Veterans Benefits Administration will hold a Veterans Townhall and Claims Clinic, March 17, in the Grand Forks County Office Building in Grand Forks, North Dakota.
The Townhall, which is open to Veterans and the general public, will be hosted by the Fargo VA HCS Director, Lavonne Liversage, and VBA Veterans Service Center Manager, Paula Heitmann.
The purpose of the Townhall is to share information, hear feedback, and answer questions about VA health care and benefits.
“There are a lot of Veterans in and around Grand Forks and we’re very much looking forward to seeing them and answering any questions they have,” Liversage said. “We encourage all Veterans, their families, and any organization or individual who works with or on behalf of Veterans to attend.”
The Townhall will be held from 5 to 6 p.m. in Conference Room B & C and the Claims Clinic will be held from 4 to 6 p.m. in Conference Room A on the sixth floor of the Grand Forks County Office Building (151 South 4th St., Grand Forks, North Dakota).
