Participating in Research
Each year, dedicated researchers and volunteers work together on thousands of studies at VA Medical Centers, outpatient clinics, and nursing homes. These studies have contributed significantly to advancements in health care for Veterans and the larger population. The VA Research Program aspires to discover knowledge through research, develop VA researchers and health care leaders, and create innovations that advance health care for our Veterans and the Nation.
Virtual media roundtables provide reporters with an opportunity for direct discussion with leading VA researchers on key research topics and portfolio areas. Each hour-long session includes brief remarks by researchers on a designated topic followed by a question and answer session. Reporters may participate in-person at VA headquarters in Washington, D.C., or by teleconference.
