Conclusion

The information obtained from the presentations and discussion during the workshop serves as an important base of knowledge for the committee as it proceeds with its charge to develop a study design(s) and methods that could be used to measure the health of PGW veterans over the long term. The committee thanks those who were willing to participate in this first step of the new IOM study on Measuring the Health of Persian Gulf War Veterans. Much additional information and research is yet to be reviewed, analyzed, and discussed before any final decisions are made, but the workshop has begun the process that will result in a final report and recommendations by the committee.
