Meeting their Needs
Members of AVAHO include those healthcare practitioners who (1) work for a VA healthcare facility (or affiliated program/institution that serves Veterans), and (2) work in the areas of hematology and oncology. All practitioners are welcome; current members include physicians, nurses, pharmacists, social workers, cancer registrars, nutritionists and more.
AVAHO provides its members with variety of networking and training opportunities (including CE-eligible) to improve the impact of their care on Veterans. We facilitate meaningful opportunities for practitioners because we believe the more information and access to viable networks you have, the better you can serve Veterans.
