Annual Veterans Health & Resource Fair Set for Saturday

Assemblyman Pedro Nava, D-Santa Barbara, the ProCare Foundation and the VA Steering Committee of Ventura County will host the third annual Veterans Health & Resource Fair from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday across the street from the Ventura County Adult Day Care parking lot, 1701 N. Lombard St. in Oxnard.

The fair will feature representatives from county, state and federal veterans’ agencies, as well as local health care organizations who will be on hand to provide information regarding benefits, health care and free health screenings. Food and entertainment will be available.

The fair also will feature a veteran oral history project where stories may be recorded and told so that future generations do not forget the sacrifices of our veterans. Veterans are encouraged to bring old photos for the interview.

“I believe it is vitally important to bring together in one place all the benefits and services at the state, federal and local level available to our veterans. In addition, it is equally important to inform our veterans about various short- and long-term health care options,” Nava said. “After all, veterans have served our country to protect the ideals of freedom and democracy and we owe it to them to them to reach out and show them our gratitude. That’s why I am sponsoring this benefits fair.”

John Mann is a spokesman for Assemblyman Pedro Nava, D-Santa Barbara.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
