Veterans and Agent Orange: Update 2012 Public Release

The findings of the Committee for the 9th Biennial Update in the Veterans and Agent Orange series will be released at 11:00 am on Wednesday, December 4th.  
A briefing session for representatives of the veterans’ service organizations on will be conducted December 4th at 2:30 pm, in Room 206 of the Keck Building, at 500 Fifth St., NW, Washington, DC.  
You are welcome to share this notice with other representatives of Vietnam veterans’ issues. Because attendance at these briefings for the last several updates has been sparse, however, we request that those planning to attend inform Jennifer Cohen at jcohen@nas.edu or 202-334-1444
If there is no demand, we will cancel the briefing.
Following the public release, the National Academies Press will post the entire prepublication draft of Veterans and Agent Orange: Update 2012 at on its website (www.nap.edu; search "Agent Orange" in upper lefthand corner) as a pdf that can be downloaded free of charge. 
(Please note that editing of this document has not been completed, but its conclusions and recommendations are final.)
