Working with Veterans Service Organizations to Improve your Research


by Kristyn Ertl, BA, CCRC ; David Kurtz, ; Jeffrey Whittle, MD, MPH
Seminar date: 6/3/2015

Description: We will review the structure and some of the goals of Veterans Service Organizations, and then explore how it might be mutually beneficial for VA researchers to work with them. We will give a brief history of collaborative relationships with VSO in Southeastern Wisconsin over the last 10 years and some of the lessons we have learned from the academic side. The senior Wisconsin professional staff member for the American Legion, also a former State Commander, will comment on the experience from his perspective and answer questions from the perspective of one VSO. Our presentation targets researchers that have a familiarity with research and the VA.
