The National Biennial Symposium for Veterans will be held Oct. 4-5, 2013 in Milwaukee at Hilton Milwaukee City Center. The objective of this symposium is to educate primary care providers and specialists in the healthcare, medical and mental health professions who are serving nearly 60 percent of the veterans who are being treated outside of the Veterans Affairs (VA) System.
