USF website pulls together research, services for veterans

USF is looking for veterans to participate in a study of whether a recent head injury affects one’s ability to walk, and possibly to think clearly.
There seems to be a link, researchers say, between an unsteady gait and impaired cognition.
The study involves filling out a questionnaire and wearing a GPS recorder on two nonconsecutive days, then doing the same thing a year later.
In return for your help, you’ll get two $25 gift cards, one after completing each of the two phases of the study.
If you’re interested, you can go here.
This is only one of the many, many USF studies looking at traumatic brain disorder, post-traumatic stress, back injury, prosthetics and robotics and the other issues affecting veterans.
You can find them all at one website, here.
It’s part of the USF Veterans Reintegration program, which has already brought acclaim to USF. First Lady Michelle Obama singled it out at a program in Virginia earlier this year unveiling a federal
veterans initiative called Joining Forces.
And it’s the beginning of what USF officials hope could be a new facility focused on rehabilitation of both veterans and older people.
