Disparities and Disservice: Women Veterans Deserve Better Health Care
Library of Congress, Jefferson Building Members Room
A panel discussion to explore the disparities that exist in the health care available to women veterans, particularly those with disabilities.
As more women enter military service, there is growing awareness of the unique care women veterans require. From proper care management, timely mammography screenings, and adequate prescription drug counseling for birth defects, to the recognition that our women veterans deserve equal access to quality specialized care. This panel will explore the impacts to women veterans and the need for equity in the delivery of health care services to them. You will hear from panelists who will address the current legislative landscape, the role of social media in connecting and informing on care and services, and what one state has done to overcome these shortfalls.
- Representative Tim Walz (D-Minn)
- Lourdes E. (Alfie) Alvarado-Ramos, Director, WA State Department of Veterans Affairs and
- Patricia Lee Stotter, Co-Producer, “Service: When Women Come Marching Home”
Boxed lunches and beverages will be provided. This invitation will be widely distributed.
