Military & Veterans SIG

Welcome to the Military & Veterans SIG!

Chairs: Shannon Ford, MD and Sofia Matta, MD

The Military & Veterans SIG has continued to hold regular meetings both to catch up on pandemic/endemic happenings around the country and to brainstorm ideas for abstracts. At our most recent call, we also discussed ways to update and improve our website to improve activity and engagement. We are also working on a speaker series for some of our upcoming meetings, which should be of interest to all, including those who do not work primarily with military/veteran populations. With ever-increasing numbers of veterans being seen in civilian hospitals and clinics, the Military & Veterans SIG remains committed to continuing as a source of information and education to the Academy. Please sign up if you are interested in learning more or participating!
