“It is more important than ever to be engaged with your healthcare, and we are grateful for the many ways Veterans have remained connected during the pandemic,” said MTVAHCS Executive Director Dr. Judy Hayman. “We understand there are many questions about COVID-19, clinic openings and a variety of other issues. We hope Veterans attend Tuesday’s virtual town hall so we can answer as many questions as possible.”
This town hall will focus on flu shots, COVID-19 updates, upcoming clinic openings across the state as well as other issues such as mental health programs and suicide prevention. The second part of the town hall will be open to Veterans’ questions and concerns. Representatives from Veterans Health Administration and Veterans Benefits Administration will be available to answer questions.
