The College of Health & Human Services worked with the Fayetteville Veteran Affairs Medical Center for a little over a year to establish an affiliation partnership. We are excited that both organizations formalized the partnership with a signed agreement on March 25, 2013. The Fayetteville VAMC has oversight responsibilities for the Wilmington, Brunswick County, and Jacksonville Community-based Outpatient [VA] Clinics. This partnership is focusing our joint efforts on (a) promoting collaboration in the areas of clinical training, research, and health education initiatives, and (b) exploring joint learning and professional development opportunities.
