- WHY: For many years, NSU has worked hard to distinguish itself as a veteran-friendly organization. And that’s not just for our students, it extends to all aspects of operations, including the many health clinics that provide services to the community.
NSU is now bringing these efforts to the next level by opening its Veterans Access Clinic. Thanks to a $5 million appropriation from the Florida Legislature and governor*, NSU can bring the full weight of its well-established clinical services to serve those who served our country. Through this funding, the citizens of Florida are helping establish a program that is designed to help provide care for those who gave so much to protect us.
This event celebrates the opening of the Veterans Access Clinic in January 2020. However, NSU has been working to set up appointments for those in need since early December 2019. The event will feature several special guests – including local elected officials serving at the city, county state and federal levels as well as veterans who are benefiting from NSU’s varied clinical offerings.
