Local Resource for POW’s

From the US Navy’s official website:

…the Mitchell Center [in Pensacola] consults and offers services to individuals from  all branches of military service, including all 21 former POWs from the Gulf War  and eight former POWs from Operation Iraqi Freedom.

The center provides  unique services to former POWs and their families. This includes an Annual  Extensive Evaluation that includes both physical and psychological evaluations,
…designed to ensure individuals using the Mitchell  Center’s services receive the most appropriate care at a time in their lives when they may not pay sufficient attention to their aches and pains.

The Mitchell Center’s research has also developed information used by the U.S.
Department of Veterans Affairs for presumptive diagnoses, aided in research in
understanding disease processes and a continued improvement to the repatriation
process.

Future Mitchell Center undertakings include studies on bone
density, premature aging, prostatic cancer and epidemiology in POWs, Hain
said.

From research and patient care to attending luncheons in honor of
former POWs, Hain said Mitchell Center staff consider it a privilege and honor
to support these American heroes.

About UWF Center on Aging

The Center on Aging at the University of West Florida was established in the Fall of 2010 when the School of Psychological and Behavioral Sciences faculty along with assistance from Sponsored Research submitted a grant to the State University System Board of Governors in support of aging initiatives for Northwest Florida. Its mission is to improve the quality of life of aging adults through the application of science to address challenges associated with aging and to promote healthy aging, with an emphasis on prevention. This will be accomplished through inter-disciplinary and inter-professional efforts of basic and applied research, consultation, and partnerships with community agencies. Education and training, direct services to the aging population, and public awareness and understanding of the contributions and needs of elders will be primary objectives.
