The Board on the Health of Select Populations (BSP) was established in February 2009 to examine health needs and health policies surrounding a broad range of discrete populations. The Board concentrates on significant health concerns that may affect groups of individuals categorized and defined by common occupation, environment, health condition or characteristics, or a shared exposure to a unique health risk.
Please note that on January 1, 2017, the Board on the Health of Select Populations was dissolved, and its ongoing studies were housed under other existing HMD Boards.
At the same time, HMD established the Office of Military and Veterans Health, which is housed under HMD’s Executive Office. This office serves as a point of contact for anyone seeking information on HMD’s current or past work in military and veterans health or who has an inquiry about future work. It builds on our past studies and activities in this area and coordinates the efforts of our Medical Follow-Up Agency, Air Force Health Study activities, and our Twins Registries.
David Butler is the Director of and point of contact for this new office, and in his role he will collaborate with Julie Pavlin, Director of HMD’s Board on Global Health.
You can access all of our work on military and veterans health as carried out by HMD and, previously, by the Institute of Medicine on our Military and Veterans Health topic page.
