Arlington, VA – Concerned Veterans for America (CVA) will host a “Fixing Veterans Health Care” forum with the New Hampshire Hospitals for Heroes initiative Tuesday, August 30, from 12:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m. at Southern New Hampshire University (SNHU) in Hooksett, New Hampshire.
CVA’s Senior Military Advisor and Retired Navy SEAL Jason Redman and CVA Vice President of Policy and Communications Dan Caldwell will join local media personality Jack Heath, Founder of Hospitals for Heroes, and local veterans to discuss the critical health care issues facing New Hampshire’s veterans and — by extension — veterans across the nation.
At the forum, CVA will take a closer look at the “Caring for our Heroes in the 21st Century Act,” a draft legislation, proposed by Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-WA), that would give veterans more control over their health care choices by allowing them to see doctors closer to home and to schedule appointments with more flexibility. The Hospitals for Heroes initiative will dive more into its member hospitals’ mission to fulfill the broken promises made by the Veterans Access, Choice and Accountability Act.
CVA New Hampshire invites veterans to attend this forum and share their thoughts and concerns about the health care they receive from the VA, and their vision for the future of veterans’ health care. Veterans make up an important constituency in the Granite State — over 114,000 and counting, a large number of which live in and around Manchester, and do not have access to a full time VA health care facility in their state.
CVA Vice President of Policy and Communications Dan Caldwell issued the following statement regarding the event:
“This forum will give veterans and their families the chance to be a part of the solution when it comes to their health care. Men and women who have worn the uniform and served our country deserve to know what national policymakers will do to hold the Department of Veterans Affairs accountable and ensure that those who have served are treated with the highest standard of dignity and care.”
This event is free and open to the public and press. Doors will open at 11:00 a.m. Lunch will be served.
