Women Veterans Event at MTSU

  Email   Print

More than one in 10 military veterans who served in Iraq and Afghanistan is a woman. And more than 57 percent of Iraq and Afghanistan women veterans have received Veterans Affairs health care (almost 43 percent have not). Of the 57-plus percent, 89.8 percent have used VA health care more than once. Middle Tennessee State University and the Department of Veteran Affairs Tennessee Valley Healthcare System are partnering an event to attract women veterans who may not know about health and educational benefits. It will be held at 7 tonight (Monday), in the Keathley University Center Theater on the MTSU campus. The event will honor and recognize women veterans through a documentary screening and informational session on VA health care and education benefits. Women veterans attending the event will see a free viewing of the documentary and have the opportunity to talk to staff from the VA and MTSU on how to maximize available education and health care benefits, plus register for VA health care. To learn more about the MTSU VetSuccess on Campus program, call 898-2974.
