Principal Investigator

 Claire Hoffmire, PhD
Principal Investigator

"I am an epidemiologist at the VISN19 Rocky Mountain Mental Illness Research Evaluation and Clinical Center (MIRECC) and the mother of three young girls. I have worked in the field of Veteran suicide prevention for seven years with one emphasis of my work being to increase our understanding of gender differences in suicide risk to help optimize gender-sensitive prevention strategies. I am conducting this study because I believe that to better serve women Veterans, it is necessary to understand more about how and where women Veterans want to engage in healthcare."

About the Research

Women Veterans are a growing and historically underserved part of the Veteran population. We want to find ways to better serve women within the VA. Women frequently seek health care for their reproductive needs. We are interested in exploring the role of reproductive health in mental health, as well as exploring women’s experiences, preferences, and beliefs about receiving care in reproductive health care settings.
