The University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus and the Defense Health Agency (DHA) signed an official Educational Partnership Agreement on May 18. The agreement will facilitate collaborations between military personnel and CU, including joint research, internships and ongoing relationships with DHA experts.
The signing ceremony, which took place in the Anschutz Health and Sciences Building, hosted key leadership in the development of this first-of-its-kind agreement at CU. The partnership will also allow CU researchers access to DHA laboratories, data and patient files.
