|Veterans Health Council|
New health organization championed by Vietnam Veterans of America helps improve Veterans health through information and advocacy.
What is the Veterans Health Council?
The Veterans Health Council's Mission Statement is:
Why is it needed?
80% of veterans don't use the VA for their health care. Most veterans do not belong to a Veterans Service Organization.
Many veterans have health problems both physical and mental related to their military service, which entitles them to compensation and medical care from the US Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). Unfortunately, too many veterans and their caregivers are unaware of the connection between these health issues and military service. This is a particular problem for those veterans who have served since the Vietnam War, as they have been exposed to toxic substances, which have impaired their health often many years after their military service.
What does the Council hope to accomplish?
Insure that veterans get the proper diagnosis based on the impact of their particular military service.
