Improving military and veteran health
Share this story

Members of the military and their families face health risks that require unique approaches to prevention and care. Canada is home to a significant military population: more than 71,500 serving members in the Canadian Armed Forces, 30,000 serving members in the Primary Reserve Forces, and more than 650,000 veterans. Queen’s University is partnering with more than 1,700 researchers from more than 40 universities across the country to address their unique needs.

Working through the Canadian Institute For Military and Veteran Health Research, they are enhancing the lives of Canadian military personnel, veterans and their families by harnessing the national capacity for research.
