September 24, 2018
The St. Cloud VA Women Veterans Program is hosting a memorial walk for Veterans and their families who have experienced pregnancy or infant loss. The walk is scheduled on Oct. 15 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the St. Cloud VA Medical Center, at 4801 Veterans Drive, in St. Cloud.
The walk will be held on the campus walking path, near Bldg. 92 on the south side of campus. In case of inclement weather, the event will be held in the Auditorium (Bldg. 8) on the north side of campus.
“Oct. 15 is National Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Day, and in coordinating maternity care for Veterans we often encounter those who have experienced a pregnancy loss,” said Amber Willert, Women Veteran Program Manager at the St. Cloud VA.
“We simply want them to know they are not alone, and to provide a way for others in the community to do the same,” Willert added.
Registration is not required and the public is invited to attend. VA staff members will be available to answer questions and to discuss pregnancy and infant loss. Individuals wanting to learn more about the walk can contact Amber Willert, Women Veterans Program Manager, at Amber.Willert@va.gov, or by phone, (320) 252-1670 ext. 6655.
