Million Veteran Program (MVP): A Partnership with Veterans
The goal of MVP is to learn more about how genes affect health, in order to improve health for Veterans, and ultimately, everyone. MVP uses genetic, military exposure, lifestyle, and health information from MVP Veteran partners to better understand the role of genes and health.
Joining MVP involves:
- Filling out surveys through the mail or online about health and lifestyle
- Providing a blood sample for genetic analysis
- Permitting MVP access to information from health records on an ongoing basis
- Agreeing to future contact by MVP for additional research opportunities.
You can also stop by our MVP Office at the Jack C. Montgomery VA Medical Center, Room 1C138-1, and speak with MVP staff.
Our team looks forward to helping more Veterans learn about and potentially enroll in MVP.
