Gulf War Veteran Engagement Sessions
The Houston VA will be the site of two special Veteran Engagement Sessions aimed at gathering information from Gulf War Veterans and their family members. Over two days, February 5th and 6th (2019), members of the VA Research Advisory Committee (RAC) on Gulf War Veterans Illnesses, will be in Houston at the VA Regional Office, 6900 Almeda Road, for Veteran Engagement (Listening) Sessions. The sessions will take place from 4 to 7 p.m. on February 5th and 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. on February 6th.
The purpose of the engagement sessions are to:
