GES Mission for the Steubenville VA

Our mission on Saturday September 23 will be to Steubenville, OH. This will be a screening event for the Steubenville branch of the VA.  This is one of the few “screening-type” of events that GES is involved with, but because the VA provides exceptional follow-up for the veterans, we are able to refer those in whom a potential problem is discovered to the nearest VA where they will get complete care. We'll be screening about 200 veterans over the course of the morning. This event is fast paced, rewarding and alot of fun. The location is at 500 Market Street, Suite 310, Steubenville, OH 43952.
