Vietnam Veterans of America Introduces First Collaboration Between Veterans and Private Sector to Address Healthcare Needs for Vets
Date:2/19/2009

WASHINGTON, Feb. 19 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The following was released today by Vietnam Veterans of America:

WHAT: VVA introduces first collaboration between veterans and private sector to address healthcare needs for veterans

WHEN: 12:30 P.M., Wednesday, February 25, 2009

WHERE: Holeman Lounge, National Press Club, 13th Floor, 529 14th Street, N.W., Washington, D.C.

WHY: As many as 80 percent of veterans do not use the Department of Veterans Affairs medical facilities for their healthcare, often because they don't know that their health problems may be related to their military service. To enlarge the safety net for our veterans, the Veterans Health Council -- a first in veterans and private sector collaboration -- will educate veterans, their families, and healthcare providers by informing them about long-term health risks and care for veterans.
