Last Thursday, Dr. Patricia Hayes, Chief Consultant for Women Veterans Health, and Stacy Garrett-Ray, Deputy Director for Patient Care Services, held the first of what will be monthly roundtables on women Veterans healthcare.

VA wants a change in culture, as Dr. Hayes points out in the Army Times:
Hayes said she has seen the VA expand its services to care for female troops since her appointment in 2007. And the number of women in the armed forces today means the department must continue to improve its care in the future, she said.
