The calendar may have said November 20, but it was also “Ladies’ Night” at the Washington, D.C., VA Medical Center (DCVAMC). More than 170 women Veterans were introduced to VA health care and services by way of an informal event featuring on-the- spot health screenings, flu shots, and women’s health exams via the new Women’s Health Clinic.
The ladies’ night event is an annual showcase for women Veterans and transitioning active duty Servicemembers. Attendees are informed on enrollment eligibility, while enjoying a social atmosphere and activities.
Among the highlights of the event, Veterans and those soon to be were able to view firsthand the comprehensive and gender-specific care the VA provides. With Women Veterans being the fastest growing population of Veterans, VA continues to deliver numerous initiatives designed to improve access and quality care for women Veterans.
