ASPA has partnered with Federal Guardian to provide general Health Exams to our Veterans. “Federal Guardian is a company dedicated to providing healthcare solutions for a variety of different needs. Currently, they are working under a fully funded Federal contract with the VA in order to contract with licensed physicians, to complete general health exams for veterans in order to reduce wait times on obtaining disability evaluations for injuries in service. When the Founder of our company Deniz, had gone through the same process it took him over 3 and a half years to be evaluated due to the massive backlogs of patients, now veterans can receive evaluations in months, getting them connected with the essential services they need every day”. For providers, it is a fantastic way to not only obtain reimbursement, but to positively impact the community in which they live, work, and interact with. Please contact Karen with ASPA for interest in this program, please email firstname.lastname@example.org

AmeriCorps VISTA serving at Catholic Charities, are among the 4 Resettling Agency in the Valley providing services to newly arriving refugees. In partnership with the International Rescue Committee, Dignity Health and Arizona State University we have developed a training for healthcare providers and local community members on arriving refugees. You are recognized as a healthcare provider in the area in which refugees are getting resettled into and could benefit from the training. The trainings are design to improve access and quality of care for patients. We cover a wide range of training topics including women’s health and how to work with interpreters to narrow the healthcare disparity.
