Benefits of our 2017 General Calendar include:
Bigger Calendar boxes: The calendar boxes provide more space for patients to write appointments and/or track daily goals.
Free Online Veterans Health at Home: Your patients will receive access to this highly acclaimed 432-page self-care book.
14-month calendar: Our calendars start in November 2012 and go for 14 months. This allows you to distribute the calendar during the October flu shot season, and your Vets can begin using them right away.
Free printable handouts: With any Calendar purchase, you'll receive a set of 12 printable, full-color educational handouts/mini-posters. Each one corresponds to the monthly theme of our 2013 VA Calendar, further enhancing patient education. VAMCs are given the rights to print and/or email them monthly to patients or blow them up to use as posters throughout your facility.
Downloadable content: Your patients can download the calendar handouts as well from a monthly link (or QR Code, with a smartphone) on the calendars.
Healthy Living Messages and PACT: Our Calendars provide up-to-date VA patient education information, including PACT content and the VA's 9 Healthy Living Messages.
