The Department of Veterans Affairs wants to hear about how COVID-19 is impacting veterans.

The VA Million Veteran Program has launched a survey that gives veterans an opportunity to share their experiences with COVID-19 and how the pandemic is affecting both their physical and mental health.

MVP is a national research program that studies how genes, lifestyle, and military exposures affect health and wellness.

“Veterans who partner with MVP contribute to improving the lives of fellow veterans and ultimately, everyone,” the site reads. “Scientific discoveries from MVP are already underway, helping us reach our goal of transforming health now and for future generations.”

The Army still plans to find a COVID-19 vaccine in 2020

Since it began in  2011, over 825,000 veteran partners have joined one of the world's largest programs on genetics and health, according to information on its website.
