ICYMI: Women Veterans discuss experiences with health care

Did you miss this month’s YouTube Live event about women Veterans’ experiences with VA health care? One panelist addressed the No. 1 reason women Veterans don’t use VA health care.

The one-hour panel discussion was the latest installment of the #ExploreVA digital event series about how Veterans can access VA benefits. During the event, three women Veterans talked with the head of VA’s national women’s health program and shared their perspectives on VA’s progress in enhancing care for women Veterans—and some of the barriers and challenges that remain.

Watch the full video to see:

  • Danielle’s historical perspective after more than a decade of using VA health care
  • Natasha’s reflections on the care she’s received, including maternity care, at the Dallas VA Medical Center
  • Amelia’s questions about applying for VA health care as an Army Reservist
