The Burn Pit Registry isn't just a listing it provides Veterans long term follow up for any conditions they have or could emerge down the road. It allows VA to identify conditions for all Veterans more quickly to make sure that Veterans get the health care that they need in a timely manner. #BurnPitRegistry
If you have experienced respiratory symptoms or health conditions that may be related to exposure to burn pits while deployed, you should register in the Airborne Hazards and Open Burn Pit Registry.

Shameful - absolutely shameful. Went to the VA clinic in N Ft Myers on January 4, 2016 with a eye glass prescription authorized by Health Net the VA's Federal Service program. The  authorization was only valid until Feb. 20 2016. Ft Myers VA clinic advised the Bay Pines has o approve the prescription - TO DATE - (April 27, 2016) no eye glasses yet.  Go figure??

You are not alone in recovering from military sexual trauma (MST)—VA can help. VA has free services available for Veterans who experienced sexual assault or harassment during their military service. No documentation is needed and you may be able to receive services even if you are not eligible for other VA care. Visit www.mentalhealth.va.gov/msthome.asp or contact the MST Coordinator at your local VA to learn more.

VA doctor read a letter saying it was almost impossible for a dr to connect with patients & families — he disagrees.

When a VA doctor read a letter in the paper that it was almost impossible for a primary care doctor to truly connect with patients and their families, he shares VA is able to do just that.

After a two-day summit with leaders in health care and brain research, VA came away with four programs that will advance the care for Veterans with TBI and other brain injuries.
By the end of the day, four teams took the top honors. In first place was TECi who pitched their voice-based assistant to help Veterans connect to the services they need.
