Peake: Group Includes 'Strong Advocates' for Vets in Rural Areas

WASHINGTON, June 5 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Secretary of Veterans Affairs Dr. James B. Peake has appointed 13 people to a new Veterans Rural Health Advisory Committee, which will advise him on health care issues affecting veterans in rural areas.

"This distinguished panel includes strong advocates for the needs of VA patients in rural areas," Peake said. "This is an important step in expanding access to VA's world-class health care system for veterans."

The 13-member group will examine ways to enhance Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) health care services for veterans in rural areas by evaluating current programs and identifying barriers to health care.

The committee, chaired by James F. Ahrens, former head of the Montana Hospital Association, includes affected veterans, rural health experts in academia, state and federal professionals who focus on rural health, state-level veterans affairs officials, and leaders of veterans service organizations.
