Other VA Research
The WRIISC research program focuses on improving the health of Veterans with post deployment health concerns. WRIISC researchers and clinicians work together to identify new problems in returning Veterans and respond to their health concerns. We use the knowledge generated by our research to identify promising treatments and the most current evidence based care for our Veterans.
WRIISC research interests cover a wide range of topics including environmental exposures and post deployment health, long-term health effects of combat, memory and mood difficulties, traumatic brain injuries, neurological diseases, integrative health and wellness approaches, disabilities resulting from deployment illnesses or injuries, women Veterans’ health, and risk communication of deployment related concerns.
