Quality of care for Veteran’s includes raising awareness around important health topics. By highlighting some of the national health awareness campaigns each month, Veterans can get ideas, information, and resources on a variety of health matters.
October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and VA wants to underscore the importance of early detection.
Women are now the fastest growing sub-group of U.S. Veterans. The number of women Veterans is expected to increase dramatically in the next 10 years, and VA health care is expected to be in high demand by the women Veterans of Operation Enduring Freedom and Operation Iraqi Freedom.
VA understands the health care needs of women Veterans and is committed to meeting these needs. Women Veterans served and they deserve the best quality care. Find out more below about what your VA is doing to help the fight against breast cancer:
