Town hall meeting at Young VA Wednesday open to veterans

The C.W. Bill Young VA Medical Center and officials of the Department of Veterans Affairs regional office at Bay Pines will hold a town hall meeting Wednesday from 8:30 a.m. to noon that is open to veterans and family members.

The meeting will take place in the JC Cobb room on the first floor of the medical center.

The VA says the agency will provide updates on operations and "improvement initiatives" for VA health care and benefits. Veterans and family will be able to comment.

VA officials also will be available to assist veterans on health care enrollment and eligibility, benefits and claims assistance.

The town hall is one of many to be held across the nation and is part of an initiative by VA Secretary Robert McDonald to improve the agency's communication with veterans.
