The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) announced the formation of the Veterans' Family, Caregiver, and Survivor Federal Advisory Committee, which will be chaired by former U.S. Senator Elizabeth Dole. The Committee will advise the Secretary of Veterans Affairs, through the Chief Veterans Experience Officer, on matters related to veterans' families, caregivers, and survivors. A key element of the committee's work will be to engage veteran family members, research experts, and family service providers as a way to better understand their needs and identify ways VA can continue to support them in the best possible way.
