The training program was created to promote the comprehensive VA health services that were designed especially for servicewomen who are transitioning out of the military. The programs overall goal is to educate more veteran women on what the VA has to offer, as well as encourage them to enroll in the VA health care system. Focused on a five-phase curriculum, the program is able to offer a full spectrum in women’s health care.
“Statistics show men seek more VA services and support than women,” said Gonzalez. “This program is geared to inform women of all the services offered for many health challenges, like depression, musculoskeletal issues, chronic pain, obesity, infertility treatment, prenatal care, contraceptive services, PTSD counseling, and many more.”
