White House Wants to Know How Tech Can Help Prevent Veteran Suicides: Request For Information with 15 Jul 19 DEADLINE
To advance the President's vision of a National Roadmap to Empower Veterans and End Suicide, OSTP and VA will lead development of a National Research Strategy to improve the coordination, monitoring, benchmarking, and execution of public- and private-sector research related to the factors that contribute to veteran suicide. Through this RFI, they seek input on ways to increase knowledge about factors influencing suicidal behaviors and ways to prevent suicide; inform the development of a robust and forward looking research agenda; coordinate relevant research efforts across the Nation; and measure progress on these efforts. The public input provided in response to this RFI will inform the Veteran Wellness, Empowerment, and Suicide Prevention Task Force, who will develop and implement the National Research Strategy. Deadline for submission is 25 July 19. Please find the RFI here.
This is an area where the Division 19 membership may be uniquely qualified to comment and influence national policy.
