Previous Committee Meetings

Committee meetings are open to the public and include time reserved for public comments.  A sign-up sheet for five-minute comments will be available at the meeting.  Members of the public who speak are invited to submit a 1-2 page summary of their comments at the time of the meeting for inclusion in the official meeting record.  Individuals do not need to preregister to attend or speak at the meeting.  However, when meetings are held at VA headquarters or facilities, all attendees will be required to check in and show valid ID at the security desk.

The Committee welcomes suggestions and information from veterans, physicians, scientists, and members of the general public regarding its mission.
