Military Health System Research Symposium 2023
Gaylord Palms Resort & Convention Center
The annual Military Health System Research Symposium (MHSRS) will bring together 3,500+ healthcare professionals, researchers, and Department of Defense (DoD) leaders for four days of critical learning, idea sharing, and networking on the unique medical needs of the Warfighter.
During the conference, visit Booth 1102 to meet with RTI experts and learn about our work in military research & solutions. Our work with the DoD spans over 40 years and includes:
- Studying the use of stellate ganglion block to treat PTSD and other mental-health disorders
- Developing the SIGMA+ Health application; an initiative allowing operational forces to have secure and critical real-time health data
- Creating and evaluating tailored sexual assault prevention programs
- Testing to protect against harmful biochemicals
We will also have more information about the North Carolina Center for Optimizing Military Performance (NC-COMP), a consortium that brings together expertise in research, medicine, health, fitness, engineering, materials, and manufacturing, to allow for accelerated creation and deployment of solutions that fill critical performance gaps.
