VA Healthcare 2018 Summit

14 May, 2018 - 16 May, 2018, Washington, DC, United States

Developing Solutions for the Next Generation of Veteran Care

The care of our Nations Veterans is one of our most important responsibilities and day after day, hundreds of thousands of men and women carry out this honorable task. In the last decade, these same individuals have become overwhelmed with the sheer amount of Veterans who require their services. The VA has worked tirelessly to incorporate new technologies and practices to help alleviate this strain while simultaneously providing excellent health services.

VA Healthcare 2018 is specifically designed to bring together leaders within the VA together from across the nation to discuss best practices, new technologies and facilities, as well as to discuss challenges and opportunities for the future.

Meet industry leaders offering cutting edge innovation, and network with other professionals to explore refining best practices in a collaborative environment. VA Healthcare 2018 will offer you professional growth with our CME certified sessions in addition to directly contributing to the well being of our veterans who have sacrificed for our country.
