One Place, Many Health Apps
Manage your apps, manage your health
Getting enough sleep, exercise, eating well, managing your appointments and medications are all key to staying healthy. A healthy lifestyle can seem like a lot of work. That's why VA offers My HealtheVet as well as mobile apps like VA Video Connect, MOVE! Coach, and VA Online Scheduling; and now VA Launchpad for Veterans can help you manage it all. With VA Launchpad, you can reach these apps and many more, all in one place.
