DoD/VA Healthcare 2014 will cover the topics most pertinent to you, our DoD and VA audience members. This year's conference will provide a forum for various military branches and their VA counterparts to discuss best practices for the treatment of patients and exchange ideas with industry leaders.
We realize budgets are tight and time is precious, so DoD/VA Healthcare will cover all the main issues DoD and VA medical professionals are currently tackling in one four day period so attendees will be able to learn and network across multiple medical disciplines and come away with new partnerships and increased knowledge of the topics discussed.
DoD/VA Healthcare 2014 is all about progress, so throughout the program we will feature case studies on the newest research and development of military and veteran healthcare. This year, we will also take an in depth look at four areas of growth in military and veteran healthcare during our pre and post conference workshops. We'll not only look at what's currently important to the DoD and VA, but also what's important for the future of military healthcare.
