President Lianna introduced our speakers. Nancy is the Assistant Dean of Health, Wellness and Veteran’s affairs at Irvine Valley College. She is a registered Nurse. She recently went to Sacramento with a group of Veterans to lobby for Veteran’s Issues.
At IVC she has received grants for over $2.4 Million. Learning “best practices” from other community colleges for veterans’ issues. Discussed the grant writing process.
She also talked about and demonstrated the back-pack project they have at IVC, as the veteran’s in the program need a lot of basic help to get started back to school!
Great job Nancy. Great to see you again!
