What We Do

What We DoThe War Related Illness and Injury Study Center (WRIISC) is a National VA Post Deployment Health Resource.  The WRIISC focuses on the post deployment health concerns of Veterans and their unique health care needs. The WRIISC develops and provides post-deployment health expertise to Veterans and their health care providers through clinical programs, research, education, and risk communication.

Our WRIISC clinical program focuses on providing environmental exposure assessments and comprehensive medical evaluations for Veterans who have chronic, medically unexplained symptoms and/or and difficult to diagnose symptoms that they believe are related to their deployment.

The WRIISC also provides post-deployment health education to Veterans, families and loved ones of deployed Veterans, health care providers, and the general public.

Our research program focuses on improving the health of deployed Veterans by researching innovative treatments designed to improve the health of deployed Veterans.

The WRIISC is under the direction of Health Outcomes Military Exposures.
