Thursday, November 29, 2018 at 07:30 PMCommunity Church in New York, NY
Attend the Save Our VA Town Hall on November 29, 7:30pm. The topic of the event is VA Privatization. The Keynote Speaker is Suzanne Gordon, author of The Battle for Veterans Healthcare.
What is privatization of the VHA? Privatization is the outsourcing of veterans’ healthcare to the private-sector healthcare system. Every time veterans use the more costly private-sector healthcare, it eats up more of the VHA’s annual budget. Less funding for VHA services will lead to hospital and clinic closings, along with VHA staff layoffs. Such drastic cuts will undermine the efficiencies of the VHA’s fully integrated healthcare system.
