VA Outperforms Private Health Care in Breast Cancer Screenings

WASHINGTON (Oct. 14, 2011)- The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) is
recognizing Breast Cancer Awareness Month this October by asking all female Veterans to talk with their health care providers about appropriate breast cancer screenings, such as regular mammograms.

"The Department of Veterans Affairs has an outstanding breast screening program," said Secretary of Veterans Affairs Eric K. Shinseki. "I urge all women Veterans to talk to their providers during Breast Cancer Awareness Month about receiving the appropriate screening."

Although October is Breast Cancer Awareness month, VA wants women to focus on their health all year round. For more information about women's health topics. Visit   and click on "Wellness & Healthy Living."
