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.

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”
