Veterans University

Third Annual Veterans University

March 3, 2018 at Agua Caliente in Rancho Mirage

Veterans University is for veterans, servicemembers, their families, and anyone in our community interested in learning about how to improve the lives of veterans in a welcoming classroom environment. 

Veterans University is a one-day event covering a myriad of topics including: health care and disability benefits, exposure to burn pits, mental health, female veteran-specific topics, home ownership, and employment resources for veterans. Presenters include representatives from Veteran Service Organizations, the Department of Veterans Affairs, and the Small Business Administration.

Presenters will provide a broad overview of each benefit, followed by practical and detailed information on how to access the benefits described. Participants will also receive contact information they can utilize, should they have difficulty accessing benefits on their own. There will also be a veterans' resource expo with many local organizations and agencies that serve veterans.

Mark your calendar for Saturday, March 3, 2018 and feel free to share with anyone interested in the community. Let’s show our veterans how important they are by learning how to better serve them!
