The Uniformed Services University (USU) recently issued a Cooperative agreement to Geneva to facilitate the execution of the Collaboratory for Musculoskeletal Injury Rehabilitation Research (CMIRR). CMIRR is a four-year, $15M program funded by the Defense Health Agency (DHA), with the purpose of improving a rehabilitative approach to caring for military service members with musculoskeletal injury (MSI) and ultimately enhancing overall military readiness. CMIRR is based at USU in Bethesda, Maryland, and includes interdisciplinary and inter-service (i.e. Army, Navy, Air Force, Marine, and Coast Guard) partnerships, the Department of Veterans Affairs, the Department of Defense (DoD), and several major academic medical centers.
*As of August 2019, CMIRR is referred to as the Musculoskeletal Injury Rehabilitation Research for Operational Readiness (MIRROR) program.
