We believe that our Veterans have given a selfless gift through their service to our country and they deserve the best health opportunities available.  We provide this by administering and supporting research and educational programs at the VA so our Veterans can benefit from new treatments and unique education opportunities.

In 1988, Congress authorized the Department of Veterans’ Affairs medical centers to establish nonprofit research and education foundations which allowed VA investigators to access non-VA funded research opportunities. At the present time, there are 83 VA Non-Profit Corporations (NPCs) across the nation. Each VA NPC is an independent, state chartered organization exempt from federal taxation under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Service Code. All research studies and educational programs supported by VA NPCs benefit VA personnel, or patients and their families.

The Foundation for Advancing Veterans’ Health Research (FAVHR) is an independent Non-Profit Corporation (NPC) established in 1988 and affiliated with South Texas Veterans Healthcare Systems (STVCHS) VA Medical Center (VAMC) in San Antonio, TX. Currently FAVHR employs four (4) administrative staff and 35 individuals engaged in research or education. the administrative offices for the Foundation are located in the Research Wing of the Audie L Murphy VA Hospital.
