|AHNA & Joining Forces
The AHNA Leadership Council has agreed to support First Lady Michelle Obama and Dr. Jill Biden's nationwide Joining Forces Campaign and is encouraging AHNA members to do the same. Joining Forces is calling on all health professionals to be aware of the specific health issues facing service members, veterans, and their families.
There are many ways to get involved including: participating in local projects or starting your own volunteer project, giving service hours, sending a message of thanks, and sharing a story of support. To read more about the Campaign and how you can help, go to: http://www.whitehouse.gov/joiningforces/get-involved
