ALS Disease Awareness Month
May is Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) Disease Awareness Month, and we want to raise awareness on this neurological disease.
“Quality care” has many definitions, but at VA it means:
• The right type of care for your health condition
• Care that results in the best possible outcome for you
• Care delivered with attention to your concerns, needs, and life goals
• Care that keeps you safe from hazards and harm
VA strives to provide the highest quality care possible every day. This site will tell you how we’re doing! For more details about what this site has to offer, please visit our About Quality of Care page.
