Healing America’s Heroes: Women Veterans Health Town Hall

Special thanks to the Eunice Joyce Gardiner Foundation for their generous philanthropy.


They are the fastest-growing segment of the veteran population, and women veterans face many of the same health and mental health problems as their male counterparts. But there are some differences: more women experience sexual trauma while serving, they are more likely to think about suicide, and more women vets’ suicide deaths are the result of a firearm injury. But the VA is changing to meet the needs of women veterans, and that’s our focus on Healing America’s Heroes: Women Veterans Health Town Hall.
