    employment 2.jpeg

Question

Project Information

print.gif Printer Friendly Version Project Title:
Shipboard Hazard and Defense II (SHAD II) PIN: IOM-BSP-10-08
Major Unit:

Sub Unit: Board on the Health of Select Populations
Medical Follow-up Agency

Project Scope An ad hoc committee of experts in conjunction with IOM's Medical Follow-up Agency (MFUA) will conduct an epidemiological study comparing the health status of the SHAD veterans with a comparison population. This study will build on knowledge gained from a prior study (Long-term Health Effects of Participation in Project SHAD, PIN# MFUA-H-02-04-A) conducted by MFUA staff between 2003 and 2007. The SHAD II study will use the established SHAD participants list and the comparison population list of individuals determined from the prior study.

As part of the data collection process, the committee will plan and conduct an initial workshop to receive suggestions and input from SHAD Veterans about their experiences so that the study can be informed by new insights from this group.

Following the completion of the analyses, the Committee will author an IOM report summarizing the approach and findings of the study.

If the results of this SHAD II study indicate a difference in outcome between the SHAD participants and the comparison population, or if the study finds new information that would warrant new research avenues, MFUA will be prepared to conduct additional research as appropriate.

This study is sponsored by the U.S. Veterans Administration. Effective 6/10/2015, the study will conclude January 15, 2016.

Thanks for this info.

When I see studies being done on vets with a completion date, my biggest fear is some of the affected vets might even be dead by time of the completion date, or are already dead now.

Still maybe this study will help the VA to realize that SHAD vets have disabilities that can only be attributed to Project SHAD and to no other non service related reason.

AO vets here for years prior to 2010 , never dreamed they would see IHD added to the AO list. It was added in 2010 due to IOM studies.

NOTHING is impossible!

    • Help needed bad  Male MST
      Is there anything for a man who's been diagnosed with PTSD secondary to MST. I see all this information and it's primarily speaking as if it only happened to females. If anybody has any advice for a man who suffers from this condition please let me know I'm not alone. Also let me know of any coping skills you've learned as I have lived the last 25-30 years of my life in full flight from reality.

    • Occasionally it becomes necessary for HadIt.com to come to the community to help raise funds. This is one of those occasions.

      A couple of things to keep in mind

      Financial contributions are never required, but always appreciated.


      NOT tax deductible, HadIt.com is NOT a non profit and any contribution you make is just a gift and cannot be deducted on your taxes.


      If you prefer to give through a subscription, you may subscribe here the rates are $5 per month or $50 per year and gives you an ad free experience on the forums.



      Thank you for your support!

    • It's now May 3 3019. Still pending for notification and past estimated completion date April 29th. If it were negative would o would have heard something right. I'm assuming I have a good chance because I have evidence, however the wait is killing me like everyone else.

    • Man using HadIt name to collect funds -  Go FundMe shuts down campaign following Raleigh man's arrest for fraud
      I was interviewed for  this story. This gentlemen was using the HadIt name to collect funds for some non existent charity. "HadIt.com" is NOT a non-profit. "HadIt.com" will never have anyone collecting outside of Walmarts. If "HadIt.com" does not list a fundraiser on our site it is not affiliated with us. Please read the story and pass on that this person is NOT affiliated with "HadIt.com"

      Note: The text at the top of the video lists me as a nonprofit founder. HadIt.com is a for profit, it is not a non profit and this man is not associated with our site and none of the money he collected had anything to do with our site.
