Veterans of America Agent Orange/Dioxin Committee is asking the children of
Vietnam veterans exposed to Agent Orange; adult children (we recommend you
register your children also) who are ill and/or have birth defects, learning
disabilities and/or mental health issues; to register with Birth Defect
Research for Children, Inc. National Birth Defect Registry.
Participation in the registry includes:
- Completing an online questionnaire which can be found at this link: http://www.birthdefects.org/registry/
- The questionnaire will ask about you (the child) or your disabilities; health and family history of both parents; exposures during pregnancy and occupational exposures.
- A special section will ask about the veteran’s service in Vietnam. This section was designed in collaboration with the New Jersey State Agent Orange Commission.
- Collected data will be used for a study of the pattern of birth defects and disabilities that have been most frequently reported in the children of Vietnam veterans.
- All data are confidential. Your permission would be requested before any researcher would get in touch with you.
The NCDVA and the US DVA never ask for private information over the phone never charge a “service fee”.
