Research Summary

Women’s health including women veteran’s health, chronic pain, menopause, hormone therapy, and women’s health education. Specific interests include gender specific outcomes after combat exposure in male and female veterans. A current project, the Women Veteran’s Cohort Study, is examining gender differences in outcomes of PTSD, depression, chronic pain, military sexual trauma, cost of care, and utilization after combat exposure in the national cohort of veterans of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. A recent study has been completed that surveyed more than 1000 women veterans about their experiences with menopause and hormone therapy. Another recently completed study surveyed women veterans about their experiences with chronic pain and associations with sexual trauma history.
