Volunteers needed for an online and completely anonymous study on post-development behavioral health outcomes
This research project will help service members and veterans of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars. Our team includes researchers, active duty service men and women, members of the National Guard, and OIF/OEF veterans.
The research study aims to better understand the impact of OIF/OEF combat deployment on a variety of behavioral health outcomes.
This study has been reviewed and approved by the appropriate Institutional Review Boards and Offices of Research Compliance at the University at Albany, University of South Florida, and the Department of Defense (DoD) Telemedicine and Advanced Technology Research Center (TATRC).
