National Public Health Week

people ready to run at a starting line on a track

April 7-13 is National Public Health Week. There are many things you can do to jump start your involvement in your health care.

Start Here: Be Informed

A key part of taking charge of your health care is being informed. When you have the most up-to-date and relevant health care information, you can actively participate when making decisions that affect your health. VA has resources to help you become, and stay, an informed health care consumer.

Start Here: Develop Healthy Habits

Start Here: Enroll in Health Care

VA wants all Veterans to get health care that improves their health and well-being. If you do not already have VA health care, find out if you qualify and enroll today.

If you are already enrolled in VA health care, you may be wondering what the Affordable Care Act, also known as the health care law means for you. The law does not change VA health benefits or Veterans’ out-of-pocket costs. Learn more about the Affordable Care Act.

National Public Health Week is sponsored by the American Public Health Association.
