New Virtual Health Group for LGBT Veterans in Chester County

LGBT Veterans

COATESVILLE, PA — The Coatesville VA Medical Center (VAMC) is registering Veterans for a new virtual health education group for Veterans who identify with the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender (LGBT) community until April 16.

This 10-week health education group focuses on developing and strengthening participants’ LGBT identity through discussion of healthcare-related topics in a supportive virtual environment.

If you are a Veteran who served during Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell (DADT), received a discharge related to identity, question your sexual orientation or gender identity, identify as a sexual or gender identity minority, want to learn more about personal identity and relevant healthcare discrepancies, or feel isolated or disconnected, this group is designed for you.

Interested Veterans need to register by April 16. Virtual group sessions begin April 20 and are held every Tuesday from 3 pm-4 pm.
