It is the goal of MOVA and the DC government to improve advocacy and outreach to women who have served in the military, gather better data and research on women veterans in DC, participate in policy that is (or may be) relevant to women veterans, and help advance the level of care women veterans receive in DC.
We understand that working for women veterans means hearing your questions, problems issues or concerns. Of course, it also means hearing what's working. With all this in mind, we approach this exciting new position with women veterans at the forefront of all we do.
The DC VA Women's Health Center focuses on health promotion, disease prevention and wellness in an atmosphere appealing to women. The center is managed by nationally certified women's health care nurse practitioners and staffed by board certified physicians.
