Educational Opportunities

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.
