Research Interest Group (BHRIG)


The TSNRP BHRIG provides a broader opportunity to synergize efforts in clinical inquiry focused on Biobehavioral Health (BH) to meet the needs of the military health system (MHS) and strengthen the capabilities of nurse scientists, translational science experts and nursing personnel serving our war fighters and military beneficiaries.


The TSNRP BHRIG focuses on the development of innovative research and Evidence-Based Practice initiatives that explore health promotion from a biobehavioral health perspective while fostering interservice collaboration. The ultimate vision is to support biobehavioral health clinical inquiry in both generating the body of military biobehavioral health science and translating biobehavioral research evidence to positively impact the quality and safety of care within the military health system. In 2021 the BHRIG consisted of 104 members, and produced 11 publications and 11 funded studies among leaders and members.
