VCT1501: Appalachian Mountain Innovative Readiness Training (IRT)

IRT is conducted by the Department of Defense in areas that meet criteria to warrant the services provided, such as Medical, Dental, and Vision assessments and care, Rabies Vaccinations, and Animal Spay/Neuter. The Allegany County Human Resource Development Commission and Appalachian Regional Commission collaborated to fund this event through a grant. This session will describe IRT, share the outcomes of the very first animal medical portion held in the lower 48 states, and discuss the collaborative project's results.
