VA-Verizon partnership

As a result of a partnership with Verizon, Veterans who are customers of the telecommunications company, as of June 27, will have unlimited access to the U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs’ (VA) VA Video Connect telehealth app.

Veterans will be able to access VA Video Connect, which uses the cameras on computers, smartphones or tablets, to let Veterans talk and interact with their VA care team over a live, encrypted video stream, anywhere across Verizon’s nationwide 4G LTE network, without incurring data charges.

“VA’s telehealth app for streaming live video sessions between patients and health care providers is another testament to our shared journey to fully integrated, seamless access to health care for our Veterans, no matter where they live,” VA Secretary Robert Wilkie said.

Accessing VA Video Connect is easy: For iOS devices, VA Video Connect is available at the Apple App Store; for all other devices, a telehealth session launches automatically after a Veteran user selects an emailed session.

“We’re proud to deepen our support of Veterans,” said Mike Maiorana, senior vice president, Public Sector, Verizon. “Regardless of whether they live in city centers or rural areas, Veterans should be able to access the VA’s telehealth resources.”

Boulder Falls closed for additional repairs

The City of Boulder’s Open Space and Mountain Parks (OSMP) Department will close Boulder Falls west of the city starting as early as Monday, July 8, to complete additional trail-related repairs in the area.

While OSMP completed significant repairs to the Boulder Falls Trail last year and was able to reopen it to the public, there are several necessary remaining repairs that will help to improve visitor experiences in the area. These repairs will build on what the department completed following the 2013 floods and will include the installation of railing along the entire length of the trail, stair construction and some fence installation in the area.

This closure is planned to continue through Sept. 6 – weather permitting. Because of ongoing road construction in Boulder Canyon, OSMP encourages visitors to access the department’s interactive trail map and to regularly check the Colorado Department of Transportation’s website before visiting city open space locations accessible from Boulder Canyon, including Boulder Falls and Chapman Drive.
