For Veterans who live near Emporia, Kansas, access to VA care is now one step closer. Veterans can meet with their VA providers through video telehealth technology in a private appointment room at the American Legion Ball-McColm Post 5.

ATLAS is part of VA’s Anywhere to Anywhere initiative — which works to better serve the more than 9 million Veterans who receive care through VA, no matter where they live.
