Description: Veterans’ unique military experiences and exposures in different military periods or eras add another layer of vulnerability to the usual determinants of health and well-being. A combination of these factors increases the likelihood of health disparities for Veterans. The October Focus on Health Equity and Action Cyberseminar – New Vietnam Veteran Studies on Health and Mortality – will describe two Veterans Health Administration program office research projects on Vietnam Veterans and discuss how these studies should demonstrate health and mortality outcomes related to equity.
Researchers, clinicians, care coordinators, policy makers, educators, Veteran stakeholders and representatives of vulnerable Veteran groups who are interested in understanding and/or promoting equitable health among all Veterans.
