Washington, D.C. – Tomorrow, June 13, U.S. Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) will hold a media availability following his visit to the Veterans Affairs Medical Center (VAMC) in West Palm Beach, Florida. Rubio will meet with senior hospital staff, including Chief of Staff and Medical Director, Deepak Mandi, M.D., to discuss various issues concerning veteran access to quality health care.
