Gulf War registry health exam
The Gulf War Registry health exam is a free evaluation for Veterans who served in the Gulf during Operations Desert Shield, Desert Storm, Iraqi Freedom, or New Dawn. Veterans can learn about possible health problems related to environmental exposures during military service. Participants receive a comprehensive health exam, including an exposure and medical history, laboratory tests if needed, and a physical exam. Follow-up evaluations are available if a Veteran has a new health concern or a change in their health status.
