The VA Star (www.houston.va.gov) is announcing a need for female veterans for an innovative Post Traumatic Stress Disorder study. The Michael DeBakey VA Hospital in conjunction with Baylor College of Medicine is seeking female veterans for a study for examining the effects of PTSD in women veterans and certain brain chemicals/hormones that are effected by PTSD. This study can assist with finding medications that will assist with treatment for PTSD in women. (The entire article can be located at the above reference website for the reasons for this research). Women veterans that have had traumatic events while in the military should consider participating in this study. If you have had a traumatic event in the military and have not filed a service connected compensation claim, please contact your local Veteran Service Office and apply for possible benefits. A woman counselor is available for discussing possible compensation benefits.
For further information or assistance, please contact your local Veteran Service Office at 10984 FM 1442, Orange, TX 77630 or at 409-745-1535.
