Meeting the Health Needs of Women in the Military The roles women play in the military have expanded greatly and they increasingly find themselves in harm's way. As the number of women veterans grows, so has their need for medical help for service-related physical and mental conditions, including sexual trauma. On the Sound of Ideas, we’ll discuss the healthcare needs of women veterans and those on active duty, how well they’re being met and steps the Veterans Administration is taking to address the challenges, including building a new Medical Health Center for Women in Cleveland. How the VA is serving women warriors, Friday at 9 on 90.3.
