WHO: Nova Southeastern University, along with the United Way of Broward County’s Mission United
WHERE: NSU’s Don Taft University Center, 3301 College Ave., Fort Lauderdale
WHEN: 10 a.m. – 3 p.m. Saturday, June 22
WHY: They are our heroes – men and women who have served in the United States Armed Forces. When their tour of duty comes to an end and they make their way back to civilian life, many are unsure of how to go about getting themselves and their families some of the basic services the rest of us take for granted.
To help, the United Way of Broward County’s MISSION UNITED program was developed to do just that. Too often, veterans say that the problem is not a lack of services, but a lack of coordination between those services. Through MISSION UNITED, United Way and its partners help military veterans and their families successfully acclimate back to civilian life by affording them the services and support they need.
NSU works with several community organizations dedicated to helping our nation’s veterans. One of those is MISSION UNITED, and to that end, NSU is hosting a Wellness Day for veterans and their families where they can get information on a host of available services. Those include, but are not limited to: wellness screenings; legal guidance and financial literacy; nutritional education; specialized women’s services; and dental and optometry screenings.
The event is free for veterans and their families. Those interested in attending and need additional information should call 954-262-3524 or email VRC@nova.edu
