New institute to support first lady’s Joining Forces initiative

The Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine has joined the Association of American Medical Colleges and the American Association of Osteopathic Medicine to establish a Military and Veterans Health Institute as part of Michelle Obama’s Joining Forces initiative.

The first lady’s initiative seeks to provide support for military service members and veterans in employment, education and health.

The new institute’s mission will be to advance care for veterans and their families in psychological health, regenerative medicine and rehabilitation.
