SEPTEMBER 2, 2020 – The national rollout for VA’s Women’s Health Transition Training program (WHTT) expanded to more than 100 training sessions this year across the U.S. and overseas including locations in Germany, Japan, and Hawaii.
More than 500 servicewomen have already received training this year either in-person or virtually. The goal to to reach more than 700 women this year!
Participants have expressed great appreciation and gained substantial knowledge after completing the WHTT training. “I feel like I’m on a better path for the transition process. Now I have a plan. This training was an eye-opener.” “Definitely took the mystery out of everything… it’s good to know what options are out there and what I can expect.”
With the COVID-19 pandemic, we are living in unprecedented times right now. Servicewomen need to know about the health services available to them when they transition. By attending this free, informational women’s health transition training, women can use this critical time to invest in discovering how to take advantage of the great resources the VA has to offer. Servicewomen learn in a live interactive online training session which will explain how to enroll in the VA, resources available to women, and women-focused healthcare services available at the VA. The training program goes over female-specific care including mental health and counseling.
Every training is led by a woman Veteran who actively uses VA health care services. WHTT trainers have been through the transitioning and enrollment process and can help women understand the health services offered from the VA, what women-specific services are available, and how to navigate the enrollment process.
As a bonus, a women veteran’s program manager (WVPM) will also be available in various virtual training sessions to answer any questions and provide additional insight! These WVPMs have unique knowledge on the services and offerings to women by women.
All servicewomen are encouraged to register and attend any virtual training. Participants are not limited to trainings in their own time zone. Start preparing for your future, and register for an upcoming training today at www.va.gov/womenvet/whtt/.
