Message from Chez Veterans Center

We are working on several initiatives related to Veteran brain health at the Chez Veterans Center's Military Service Knowledge Collaborative (MSKC). One is the launch of this study, which is in partnership with a local Veterans organization here in Urbana. This study will do two things: 

  1. Help us form a "Veteran Engagement Team" at the Chez Veterans Center so the Veteran voice is front and center when we develop our research ideas, and
  2. Allow us to gain some initial insight into what the issues and challenges are, which sets us us for a much larger project on Veteran brain health we have up our sleeve. 

If you are a Veteran or caregiver, we invite you to take this survey and share your knowledge with us--help us to make the invisible visible. If you have Veterans in your network, we ask you to share this research engagement opportunity with them. 

Are you a Veteran or do you live with or care for a Veteran? The Chez Veterans Center wants to engage with you on the topic of brain health! Brain health can refer to anything involving the physical and mental state of your brain. Some examples include but are not limited to ability to sleep, job performance, traumatic brain injuries, mental health, memory, and your emotions. We want to learn about your brain health experiences related to the military and opinions about research through a short, one-time survey. Your feedback will help us build a “Veteran Engagement Team” to inform and shape brain health research impacting Military Service Members, Veterans, and their families. Our mission is to lead the next generation of research with Veterans to optimize Veteran brain health.

Take the survey here!
