You are invited to participate in a study focusing on your health behaviors and life experiences as a woman Veteran from the Health for Every Veteran Study.

This is to better understand the experiences of Veterans from all backgrounds and promote their health and well-being, including women who served. They are especially interested in hearing the diverse voices within our communities.
The study consists of completing a confidential, web-based questionnaire every 9 months for approximately 2 years (for a total of 4 questionnaires). All research activities are completed online, with no in-person visits required.
