Veterans' Health Studies of the The National Academies' Institute of Medicine
At the request of congressional staff covering these issues, a briefing for staff and/or members only was held by Academies staff to discuss congressionally mandated work -- both completed and ongoing -- that The National Academies' Institute of Medicine is performing on issues related to the health of American veterans. Among the issues covered were: exposure to herbicides in Vietnam; service during the Persian Gulf War and health; service in Vietnam, agent orange, and health; and hearing loss in veterans associated with military service from World War II to the present.
Completed reports on some of these topics, as well as others, can be found by performing a search on the Web site of The National Academies Press. Ongoing work can be found by doing a search on The National Academies Current Projects site.
