Today on WJON I talked with Public Affairs Officer Barry Venable and Community Engagement Partnership Coordinator Laura Kuntsleben from the St. Cloud V.A. Barry talked about the V.A. plan to make flu shots available to veterans by using a drive up at the Municipal Athletic Complex in September and October and at the V.A. parking lot in October.
WJON's Health Matters program addressed the topic of suicide and suicide prevention. My guests included Bethany Oberg with the Community Alert Mental Health Initiative and David Faust with Stonehouse Resources. Both are members of the Central Minnesota Suicide Prevention Coalition.
Today on our Voices For Veterans segment I talked with Barry Venable (Public Affairs Officer) and Mary Jo Pine (Suicide Prevention Coordinator) about Suicide Prevention. September is suicide prevention month.
