Information about this webinar series

Together with the Older Persons Advocacy Network, we are hosting the first of eight free interactive educational webinars to inform health professionals, community workers, and veterans and their families about the services that are available.

Veterans and their families often turn to people they trust for information. With this in mind, we are keen to share information about support services and programs, and how easy it is to access these services.

Please join us for all eight webinars in the series or just for the ones that are of interest to you.
