Did you know that many Veterans deployed in the Persian Gulf region report concerns with respiratory irritants, specifically smoke from burn pits? Join us on March 24 at 1 p.m. ET for our next webinar, entitled “Airborne Hazards and Burn Pits: What health care providers need to know.”

VA physicians Dr. Anays Sotolongo and Dr. Michelle Robertson will discuss Veteran health concerns related to exposure to burn pits and other airborne hazards.

They’ll also describe how the Airborne Hazards and and Burn Pits Center of Excellence is working to understand how these exposures impact Veterans’ overall health and what community providers should expect upon referring Veterans for Burn Pit registry exams.

Attending this webinar is a great opportunity to learn more about Veteran patient concerns and how to best support and care for their heath care needs.

    Yes I have comment, I have neuropathy of the feet and unless I felt this disease 1 year after coming out of Vietnam I don’t qualify , I can only go back as far as about 1979 that I noticed anything and had no idea what was coming or going on. I left Vietnam in 1966, I don’t have diabetes which is associated with this problem. I really think this should be looked into, I’ve been covered for prostate, had plenty of cancer taken off my body either through freezing or operation

    Will there be any discussion about Agent Orange from Vietnam and Lymphoma cancers?
