If you have been waiting for the green light to start your Veterans Clinic- you've got it! 

If you are ready to get started now:  Send us an email with the subject "I'M READY, TELL ME MORE" and we will send you the startup materials.
If you are almost ready and/or want to join an informational conference call:
 Send us an email with "VETS CLINIC CONFERENCE CALL" in the subject line and we'll send you the details on how to call in. 

 The next 2 conference calls will take place on:

 Monday, August 20, 6 - 7 p.m. PT

                                                 Wednesday, August 22, 6 - 7 p.m. ET                        

The new model for the clinics is going to be grassroots-based, with each clinic functioning independently and AWB providing a supporting role at the national level. This will allow each clinic to develop according to the needs of its community.  We are very excited about the shift in this direction.

We know that all of our local efforts combined into one big national network will make for a thriving and dynamic program.  It's time to start sowing the seeds!
