VA Applauds VFW Convention Panel on Women Veterans

The VFW Advisory Committee for Women Veterans, along with Department of Veteran Affairs, hosted a panel discussion for women veterans’ benefits and health care last Saturday at the VFW National Convention. The discussion began with two presentations from VA about what they are doing to improve quality of care and resources for female veterans. In attendance from VA was Kayla Williams, the director of the Center for Women Veterans, and Dr. Sally Haskell, the deputy chief consultant for Women’s Health Services. Afterward, Williams and Haskell posted a blog reviewing the discussion as well as their experience. The VFW and VA look forward to working together to make the panel discussion an annual event.
