A town hall meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, Feb 12, for women veterans to discuss the health care they receive at the Veterans Affairs Medical Center in Salem.
The meeting is part of an evaluation of health care at VA facilities nationwide by the American Legion.
A legion task force created in 2003 will hear from women veterans starting at 5:30 p.m. at the American Legion Post 3, 710 Apperson Drive, Salem.
The task force will also visit the VA medical center to interview patients, staff and administrators, the veterans’ organization said in announcing the town hall.
“We conduct these site visits each year to evaluate and report on the quality of health care our veterans are receiving,” Ralph Bozella, chairman of the legion’s System Worth Saving Task Force, said in a prepared statement. “Our next report will focus on the health-care needs of women veterans.”
