March 21, 2023 – Serving Pacific Islander Veterans
Dr. Moy and Ms. Hutson shared data sets disaggregating Asians and Native Hawaiians from Pacific Islanders to help inform efforts to serve veterans in the Pacific Islands. They included an urgent appeal to all veterans to apply for PACT benefits and to enroll with the Veterans Administration for services. Efforts to strengthen VA services for veterans from the U.S. territories and the freely associated states are dependent on veterans registering and the VA knowing where populations are and understanding their needs.
