VA connected care Twitter chat set for June 7

The American Legion and the Department of Veterans Affairs will team up for a Twitter chat on June 7 to share information on VA connected health-care programs such as My HealtheVet, VA Telehealth video appointments using VA Video Connect, and more than two dozen mobile apps for veterans on the VA App Store.

The Legion will host the chat on its Twitter page beginning at 1 p.m. ET using the hashtag #ConnectedCareChat. Legion representatives will ask questions about VA connected health-care tools and get answers and additional information on the Veterans Health Administration’s Office of Connected Care. Twitter users also will be able to ask questions during the chat.
