For Participants

Hello VETSA Nation!

Data collection for wave 3 of VETSA MRI (VETSA MRI 3), is scheduled to begin in Fall 2015. If either you or your brother has ever had an MRI in the VETSA projects, you will be getting a letter inviting you to participate in this third wave of the study. As before, you will need to send back a signed authorization form if you are interested in participating.

We expect to begin sending letters sometime in Summer 2015. Remember that it takes several years to complete the study, so your particular letter might not be sent for a few years. In most cases, you will be contacted about 5 to 6 years since the last time you participated.

For non-MRI participants: Many of you have participated in VETSA but neither you or your brother ever had an MRI as part of the study. For you, wave 3 of VETSA will begin just a few months after VETSA MRI 3.  The process of getting the letter inviting you to participate will be the same.
