A new VA and DoD collaboration offers a virtual option for the Women’s Health Transition Training Program. The program provides service women with a deeper understanding of the women’s health services available to them within the VA health care system and how to navigate the VA enrollment process.
This free training is designed for Active Duty service women planning on transitioning to civilian or Reserve/National Guard status within the next calendar year, or women Veterans and current National Guard/Reserve members who have not enrolled into VA healthcare.
The training is led by women Veterans for women currently serving and fellow women Veterans.
Instructor Nik Hall is an experienced health care and business management professional. Her work for Navy Medicine includes 10 years of experience with clinical transformation, pharmacy operations, patient experience, and women’s health. As an OEF combat Veteran, she was the first female in combat operations in Afghanistan in 2002.
Nik, who utilizes VA health care herself, has personally benefited from the course information and enjoys delivering this high-energy and interactive virtual course. She covers the following:
• The transformed culture of VA health care systems to accommodate women Veterans in a safe and respectful manner
• Range of women’s health and mental health care services available from VA
• Eligibility for enrollment in VA health care
• How to proactively manage your own health care
• Transition assistance
• Locations of VA health care facilities and points of contact
The course offers the opportunity to engage with live training instructors who answer your questions in real-time, a Women Veterans Program Manager from a VA Medical Center and other Servicewomen navigating the transition process.
