Our Mission

The mission of the Veterans Research and Education Foundation of St. Louis is to improve the health and well-being of Veterans through research and education conducted within the VA St. Louis Health Care System.

Research Day Reception

The VA hosts an event each year called 'Research Day'. This day is dedicated to the achievements of VA researchers and the role they play in providing high quality care for Veterans and advancing medical science. 

This year the VREF staff decided to hold a dinner the night before Research Day to bring together all of Research Staff and celebrate all we have accomplished and will continue to do in the future. Our event was held on Thursday, April 18th, at Wild Flower Restaurant and Catering in the Central West End. 

Our event was a huge success thanks to all of those who attended! We are looking forward to next year already!
