Friday, January 29, 2016

The Million Veteran Program (MVP) is a national, voluntary research program conducted by the Department of Veterans Affairs, Office of Research & Development.

MVP aims to enroll one million Veterans over a 5-7 year period. Data collected by MVP will be used for decades to come and may lead to new ways of preventing and treating illness in Veterans and all Americans.

Currently, there are 50 participating VA Medical Centers enrolling Veterans. MVP plans to expand participation to all Veterans using the VA healthcare system in the future.

Veterans' safety and information security are top priorities; Researchers who are approved access to MVP samples and data will not receive the name, address, date of birth, or social security number of partcipating Veterans.

MVP will provide a better understand of how genes affect health and illness, with the ultimate goal of transforming health care for Veterans through the delivery of personalized medicine.

Participation in MVP includes: filling out surveys, providing a blood sample for genetic analyses, allowing secure access to medical records on an ongoing basis, and agreeing to future contact by MVP staff.
