It's Here! The Improved My HealtheVet Website

 
Veteran using the new My HealtheVet website on an iPad
 
We are proud to announce the release of our newly redesigned website. It is designed to improve your online experience and adopts the U.S. Web Design Standards.
Immediately you will see new site features such as colors and a leaner, cleaner appearance. You will notice all your favorite My HealtheVet features such as Pharmacy, Appointments, Secure Messaging and VA Health Records are still on the home page.
A few things you'll love about the new My HealtheVet website right now:
  • New Drop-down Boxes: There are now fewer tabs to choose from! Fewer tabs make it easier to navigate the site. We reduced the thirteen red and white tabs to six blue drop-down topics. Each of the following topics has drop-down navigation sub-topics to help you locate your targeted feature:
o   Personal Information
o   Pharmacy
o   Research Health
o   Get Care
o   Track Health
o   MHV Community
  • Search, About, Contact: These resources are on every page, making them more visible.
  • Quick Links: This popular section, with links to VA resources, is now on the bottom of every page.
  • Login/Register: The Login and Register buttons are clearly visible. Registration requires fewer steps to complete.
  • Other Updates: You will notice some other minor changes that should not affect navigation throughout the site, such as the eye-catching Login and Register buttons.
What Stayed the Same?
  • Health Information: Veterans' VA health information and self-entered data is not affected by this change.
  • Features and Functionality: All features and functionality are the same. Veterans will still be able to accomplish their tasks as before (refilling prescriptions, sending Secure Messages and accessing VA medical records, etc.).
  • User ID and Password: My HealtheVet User IDs and passwords are not affected.
Vets.Gov and My HealtheVet
My HealtheVet is partnered with Vets.gov and VA Mobile to provide you with a more integrated online experience to access VA products and services. You can now securely access Rx Refill, VA Blue Button reports and Secure Messaging directly from Vets.gov.
 
We hope these updates will make it easier to use the important tools and resources available to manage your health.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Dublin VA to host Job Fair for veterans Jan. 12

 

Dublin, Ga. – The Carl Vinson VA Medical Center will host a job fair Jan. 12 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. to bring together potential employers and veterans looking for jobs. The event will take place in the medical center’s auditorium and will include a diverse array of employers from middle Georgia.

 

Event coordinator and VA vocational rehabilitation specialist Gloria Smith said that the purpose of the event is to get veterans and potential employers together so that veterans can get back to work.

 

“Our job fair brings together our community partners for the purpose of educating, empowering, and employing our veterans. One of our veterans’ most important needs is to be gainfully employed, so partnering with local employers is critical,” Smith said.

 

Smith said that dozens of employers will be on hand to speak with veterans about possible employment, including such organizations as Flexsteel, Coca Cola, Georgia Department of Corrections, Volunteers of America, Chic-fil-A, GEICO, and many others. She encouraged all potential employers of veterans to contact VA and consider putting veterans to work.

 

“Veterans not only bring some of the highest quality technical skills to organizations, they have the discipline and work ethic to make them invaluable team members. By employing a veteran, you not only gain a skilled employee, you honor America’s heroes. That deal is hard to beat!,” Smith said.

 

Communications director Dr. Frank Jordan extended an invitation to public to attend the event.

 

“We certainly hope that veterans will take advantage of this opportunity and that potential employers will come out, but we also want the general public to come by. Our belief is that it is crucial for our success in caring for veterans that our public knows how we work, so we make most of our events public. Everyone should feel free to stop by,” Jordan said.

 

For more information, or to participate in this or future VA job fairs, contact Gloria Smith at Gloria.Smith5@va.gov or 478-272-1210 ext. 3579. The Dublin VA is located at 1826 Veterans Blvd., Dublin, Ga. 31021.
