OMB Control Number: 2900-NEW.
Type of Review: New collection.
Abstract: The Department of Veterans Affairs Cooperative Studies Program (CSP) is conducting a human subjects research study to understand the association between military deployment to Afghanistan, Iraq, and 5 other countries and current pulmonary function. Data on deployment locations, exposures while deployed, current pulmonary function and several important covariates are not available and will need to be collected from participants. This research study will generate data which will be used to assist VA in obtaining information that can be used to improve health care for Veterans.
