Although I am just one veteran, my story should be told to represent DeVry University in a positive way. The focus of the previous Daily article was lost in translation because of its factual errors. I wish again to applaud the efforts of the group Service to School. I do not wish to undermine their efforts in assisting fellow veterans. I only wish that stories such as mine along with the additional facts presented here were reflected in the original article.
Stanford will open the Office for Military-Affiliated Communities (OMAC) at Tresidder Memorial Union this fall. OMAC, which will replace the Student Veterans Affairs Office (VA), will be open five days a week from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., an increase from the current VA, which was open one day a week for two hours.
A recent executive order aimed at preventing institutions of higher learning from aggressively recruiting veterans will have minimal effect at Stanford because the University does not profit from veterans’ benefits, according to campus administrators.
A School of Medicine study found that 80 percent of surveyed Veterans Affairs (VA) patients are interested in sharing their health records electronically with family members, caregivers and outside providers in order to improve their care.
A team of Boston- and Stanford-based researchers has devised a less costly, clinic-based approach to randomized clinical trials (RCT) that shifts patients to a more successful therapy as the trial progresses. The method, based on the Veteran’s Affairs (VA) electronic medical records system (EMR), is currently being tested in a comparative effectiveness trial of two insulin regimens in the Boston VA system.
