    Source: U.S. Army Borden Institute. Published: 3/2019. This volume documents the services' support for workers in the military industrial base, and archives information on exposures of concern among deployed service members, documenting the development of data repositories and registries, as well as studies done with this data. It identifies innovations in exposure identification and assessment for future efforts. It should be useful to practitioners of military medicine and those involved in military occupational and environmental health research, so that avoidable exposures among service members and civilian staff can be avoided, and adverse health effects stemming from military service can be treated with the best available knowledge and procedures.
