Join us for a Facebook Town Hall on Women’s Health


October is National Breast Cancer Awareness month, a time when we encourage women to make time for screening and early detection. Please join us on Wednesday, October 5 at 12pm EDT, when TRICARE and the Health Affairs Women’s Health Issues Group will host a town hall to discuss not only breast cancer screenings, but all issues surrounding women’s health and readiness.
