The Annual Veteran's Administration VA Research Week is going on today through May 17th all across the country. I spoke with Dr. Joel Kupersmith, Chief Research and Development Officer, Veteran's Health Administration at the Department of Veteran's Affairs last week as he was preparing for this week's activities.
Dr Kupersmith says the week is designed to highlight the groundbreaking achievements of VA investigators, and to honor the Veteran Volunteers who participate in many VA Research studies. Accordingly, this year's theme is "VA Research Inspires."
Tune in on Monday during Morning Edition in the 8 o'clock hour to hear this inspiring conversation about what our veteran's have gone through and how they are being helped.
