Help for Homeless Veterans

Physician volunteers are needed to help homeless veterans at Stand Down events that are taking place across Minnesota this summer and fall.  Physician volunteers meet with veterans to provide free health screenings and consultations. Stand Downs are typically one-day events providing supplies and services, such as food, shelter, clothing, health screenings, and VA Social Security benefits counseling to homeless veterans.
