NAVREF is proud to recognize Cohen Veterans Bioscience as our Champion Sponsor
NAVREF is an active participant in advocacy efforts to secure robust support for VA research and development. This entails lobbying for an increase in the annual appropriation of VA medical and prosthetic research account, which is separate from VA health care appropriation. Also, when warranted, NAVREF works with House and Senate Veterans Affairs Committees to highlight pertinent research and education issues. Finally, these committees also are critical to the statute that authorizes NPCs.
NAVREF coordinates its funding advocacy efforts with the Friends of VA Medical Care and Health Research (FOVA), a coalition of more than 80 medical specialty, patient advocacy, scientific and academic organizations committed to high quality care for veterans.
ADVOCACY THROUGH PARTNERSHIP.
Together with the Friends of VA Medical Care and Research, NAVREF works with a network of organizations to deliver our message to Congress.
