Secretary McDonald's Key Point Addressing the Institute of Medicine Annual Meeting

"Employees across the Department have rolled up their sleeves, and work is underway to make the changes to VA systems, procedures, and culture that the law requires. We’ve done a lot, but there’s a lot left to do if we’re to right the wrongs, institute reforms and employee accountability, modernize, and recruit the numbers of healthcare professionals we need.We are committed to doing the right thing—delivering the right programs, in the right way, at the right time, for those special Americans we serve."
Let's trust that the Secretary's assurances will lead the C-123 Committee towards the right decisions – decisions about fully embracing our veterans rather than, as many feat, develop schemes to evade the IOM conclusions and the impact their report has on the issue of presumptive service connection.
