Byrd's Capstone project in the news!

by: Reteisha Byrd 06/23/2017

As the last assignment in my MPA program, the class had to do a group project. The organization assigned to us was the Arkansas Department of Veterans Affairs (ADVA). That semester-long project consisted of interviewing leadership at the ADVA, scouring databases to pull data on veterans, referencing research articles, in addition to applying personal knowledge about health insurance benefits and long term care. The end result was a plan that ADVA will use to assist in the decision making of proving long-term care for veterans. This project was very fulfilling and I learned many things that I had no prior knowledge of. Check out this news article highlighting that project.
