VA Honored for Department Medical Research

Labs recognized by Nature Index, doctors recognized in Time 100 Health List.

The Nature Index, a prestigious database of scientific journals, recently recognized the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) as one of the top 10 fastest-rising research institutions in North America. Two VA researchers were also listed in the Time100 Health List for influential people in health care for 2024.

“VA medical breakthroughs over the past century — including pacemakers and liver transplants — are now integral parts of health care for Veterans and all Americans,” said Under Secretary for Health Shereef Elnahal. “One of the major reasons why VA has proven to be the best health care in America for Veterans is that VA researchers continue to lead the nation in making discoveries that ultimately improve the care we can provide.”

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For Under Secretary Elnahal to be discerning as he oversees the Veterans Health Administration.
  • For Secretary Denis McDonough to receive God’s direction as he heads the VA department.
