VA to host Women Veterans’ Information Fair
MUSKOGEE – The Eastern Oklahoma Veterans Affairs Health Care System on May 12-18 is hosting a Women’s Health Week and free Women Veterans Information Fairs from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. on May 15 at its outpatient clinic in Tulsa and on May 16 at its medical center in Muskogee.
“The purpose of this outreach effort is to support women veterans on their health journey within VA,” Mark Morgan, Eastern Oklahoma VA Health Care System director, said. “We will not only have information on VA health services specific to women veterans, but also display the welcoming and supporting environments we have created for them. We encourage all women veterans not currently using VA services to enroll and use the benefits they have earned.”
EOVAHCS representatives will be on hand to discuss eligibility and enrollment, primary care, community care, suicide prevention, homeless veteran program, patient advocate program, military sexual trauma, peer support and more.
Staff from the Veterans Benefits Administration and National Cemetery Administration will also be there to share their programs and benefits.
The Tulsa clinic is at 9322 E. 41st St., and the event will be held on May 15 in the Boomer Sooner Room. The medical center in Muskogee is at 1011 Honor Heights Drive, and the event will be held on May 16 in the auditorium on the second floor. Light refreshments will be served.
