MARTINSBURG, W.Va. - Veterans Affairs officials held a health fair here Friday to explain new medical services available to veterans and to offer free health screening.
A new primary care service started by the Veterans Affairs Medical Center in Martinsburg will provide each veteran with a personal physician, nurse, pharmacist and dietician, said hospital spokeswoman Doris Griffin.
The fair was also designed for veterans whom the hospital has not heard from in the last three years. About 2,000 letters were mailed to the veterans encouraging them to return to the hospital for free medical screenings.
