Out Front – March 2022

I have a great concern for our Chapter members. As our office volunteers try to reach out to them, they’re finding a significant amount of phone numbers are disconnected, no longer in service, or just incorrect. This makes it extremely difficult for the Chapter to pass timely information on to you. More importantly though, we’re unable to directly check-in with you to see if you have any immediate needs or experiencing any difficulties with your care which we could assist with. We’re here as a resource to serve you. To ensure you receive the benefits you’ve earned, the quality healthcare you’ve deserve, and in a timely and efficient manner. If you’re not, and having issues of any kind, please let us know. Call the office anytime at 800-660-1181.

We’re also here to help provide other programs and services to help enrich your life, health and well-being.

Whether this is adaptive sports, peer mentoring, volunteering, employment or simply providing a safe place to talk to someone.

In any of these cases, please call the office and let us know what we can do for you. We want to know what

your needs are and how we best we meet them. No one should be left alone to fend for themselves. That’s not why you joined PVA and that’s not who PVA is.

Speaking of programs and events. Here’s a small list of things to coming up in the next few months and later in the year:

Circling back to the beginning, I want you to know, without any doubts, your New England Chapter is here for you. Please don’t hesitate to call or email us. We sincerely want to hear from you and know how we can best serve you.
