Celebrating VA Medical Research

PROVIDENCE, R.I. – The Providence VA Medical Center will highlight medical advancements and VA research during Research Day Friday, May 20, 1 to 4 p.m. in the Providence VAMC 5th floor classrooms.

"VA research benefits both Veterans and the progress of medical science nationwide," said Dr. Gaurav Choudhary, chief of research at the Providence VAMC. "The Providence VA Medical Center is host to 240 different research projects in many cutting-edge areas of research, including neurotechnology, prosthetics, posttraumatic stress, health services, heart and lung diseases, genomics, and alternative pain management."

Scheduled during the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs' National VA Research Week celebration, Research Day at the Providence VAMC will feature guest speakers including Sen. Jack Reed, Rep. James Langevin, Rep. David Cicilline, and Dr. Patricia Dorn, director of the Veterans Health Administration's Rehabilitation Research Service. There will be poster presentations on many of the research projects following the speaking program.

"Research is a critical component of our commitment to provide Veterans with the exceptional health care they've earned though their service and sacrifice, both today and in the future," said Dr. Susan MacKenzie, director of the Providence VAMC. "We're inviting Veterans, their families and supporters to come learn about the achievements of VA researchers and the important roles they play in advancing medical science."
