State Senator David Lucas planning health fair for veterans

MACON, Georgia (41NBC/WMGT) – State Senator David Lucas and other officials are trying to help war vets when they get back from overseas. 

Lucas along with members from different veterans health organizations announced plans to hold a Veterans Health Fair.

The goal is to educate war vets about benefits and services with the department of veterans affairs, and Lucas says it all started with a phone call from one of his supporters. 

“If I’ve got that problem with one constituent then I got a lot of constituents that live in the Macon and middle Georgia area that have got that probably have that same problem and don’t know who to call,” Lucas said. 

The Veteran’s Health Fair is scheduled for April 18th at the Buck Melton Community Center in Macon.
 
They’ll be talking about primary care, mental health, dental health, benefits, the wounded warriors project and more.
