CHHS & Fayetteville VAMC Affiliation Agreement signing

CHHS & Fayetteville Veteran Administration Affiliation

The College of Health and Human Services worked with the Fayetteville Veteran Affairs Medical Center (VAMC) 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 promoting collaboration in the areas of clinical training, research and health education initiatives and exploring joint learning and professional development opportunities.
