This is the fourth in a series of audio podcasts by Chiriqui.Life. The subject of this podcast is the Healthcare Alliance Panama and the We Care Pharmacy. JR Pazo was the main speaker, who was representing both organizations. JR was invited to speak at the Tuesday Morning Meeting series on June 6, 2017. Here is a link to the meeting announcement: http://www.chiriqui.life/topic/6137-tuesday-talks-veterans-assistance/.


After the usual announcements at the beginning of the weekly BCP Tuesday Morning Meetings, emcee Merl Will-Wallace introduced JR Pazo for this well-attended presentation.

JR Pazo, representing the Healthcare Alliance Panama and the We Care Pharmacy, was the lead speaker for a presentation about service-related disability healthcare benefits for US veterans who reside in Panama. Those benefits are administered by the Veterans Administration agency of the USA. The presentation was on June 6, 2017 at the BCP Theater and Event Center in Boquete. It was a standing room only event.

This posting documents that meeting, including the contact information, some pictures from the event, the presentation materials, and an audio recording of the presentations and Q&A session.

In his opening comments, JR introduced Boquete resident Charles Lintz to the audience. Charles is a 94 year old veteran of World War II. He received a standing ovation. Here is a picture of Charles.

Hola Bud,

I couldn't get the Hospital Brisas link to work.  Can you put it up one more time please?  Thanks.

Apologies, Woody.

No idea what happened, but it just seemed to disappear into the ether. I've uploaded it again onto the server.

It should be working now.

On August 15, 2017, there was another presentation at the BCP Theater regarding VA benefits. That presentation was by Betsy Barbeau, and was on the subject of the VA's pension benefit called "Aid and Attendance". Click Here to see the documentation about that presentation.
