Health Fair For Veterans (HFFV) is a medical screening (not care) program focused on servicing military veterans in need. This project provides free quarterly medical screening and referrals for veterans. The “Montero Medical Missions Health Fair For Veterans” (MMM HFFV) project is an innovative, free; quarterly event staffed and sustained entirely by volunteer doctors, nurses and community businesses with other organizations to support veterans in their health care needs.
Typical Services offered to Veterans at Our Health Fairs
– Mental Health
– Eye Sight
– Women’s Health
– Social Work
– Veterans Claims Assistance
All doctors, nurses and staff are volunteers from local hospitals, medical and non-medical colleges, businesses and veteran’s organizations totaling over 70 volunteers per event.
These free medical screenings are conducted quarterly with most hosted by the Chesapeake Regional Medical Center, Life Style Building located at 800 N. Battlefield Blvd. from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. (continental breakfast and lunch available). Location is subject to change.
Veterans must show proof of military service (DD form 214, or ID card).
– April 1 (Chesapeake)
– October 7 (Chesapeake)
Each veteran is given a personal escort to assist them through the medical screening process.
The project also provides free transportation to those veterans who do not have the transportation means to get to our medical health care screening facility.
Future HFFV planning includes a mobile outreach health care screening and referral program.
