The Offices of Assemblymember Richard Bloom and Assemblymember Adrin Nazarian (Sheriman Oaks) will join with the American Legion Hollywood Post 43 to host a Veterans Update with California Department of Veterans Affairs Secretary Vito Imbasciani on Sunday, December 10, 2017 in Hollywood. 

Secretary Imbasciani was sworn in as secretary at the California Department of Veterans Affairs (CalVet) on September 28, 2015. Imbasciani was director of government relations at the Southern California Permanente Medical Group since 2004, and has been an active urologic surgeon in that group since 1997.

​He served as state surgeon for the California Army National Guard from 2006 to 2014 and as a surgeon in the U.S. Army Medical Corps from 1986 to 2014, with four deployments in support of operations in Saudi Arabia, Iraq, and Landstuhl, Germany. He retired as colonel in the Medical Corps of the U.S. Army in 2014. Imbasciani has been president of the Los Angeles County Medical Association and the California Urological Association, as well as a trustee of the California Medical Association and the California Association of Physician Groups.

He earned a Doctor of Medicine degree from the University of Vermont College of Medicine and Doctor of Philosophy and Master of Arts degrees in musicology from Cornell University. He studied in Rome, Italy as a Fulbright Fellow.


Veterans, active duty and reserve duty service members are invited to join us at the American Legion Hollywood Post 43 at 11:00am to meet Secretary Imbasciani and to hear from him about the work CalVet is doing to improve services to California's veterans.  Other Veteran's groups and resource organizations will be represented at the event as well to provide relevant services to assist veterans.
