The Uniformed Services University of Health Sciences will look into how veterans and their families can best be helped. The study, Families OverComing Under Stress: Combat Injury (FOCUS-CI), will include research on a new program from the university created to strengthen and teach these families new skills.

Research will be conducted near the areas of Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Bethesda, Md., San Antonio Military Medical Center and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. The participating families will be interviewed quarterly on topics including injury, treatment, home relationships, feelings and changes.
