Innovative Engagement

Finding ways to disseminate and implement Seattle-Denver COIN research is our goal. We look for innovative ways to engage with our stakeholders. We do not believe there is one way to "get the word out". There are many and we are interested in exploring what works now and what will become available in the future. We utilize a hub and spoke model with some of our spokes listed below.

Veteran Engagement Group

The Veteran Engagement Group for Research is a Veteran-based group that provides feedback on VA research. Veteran feedback is essential to shaping and informing VA research.

Community involvement in research falls along a spectrum with traditional research, where community members contribute as research participants, to community-based participatory research, where community members are part of the research team. Community engagement groups, like our Veteran Engagement Group (VEG), fall somewhere in-between these two. Members are not participants in any of the studies presented to them and they are not on the research team.

For instance, follow us on Twitter at @SeaDenCOIN to find out about upcoming cyberseminars our researchers are giving. Or learn about the publications we are constantly putting out. Look and see who we are following and who is following us to find many of researchers also on Twitter. You can find a community of researchers who are truly innovative.

Visual Abstracts

We are also using visual abstracts to make people more familiar with our research publications. See all our rapidly expanding collection.


Health Findings in Focus Podcast

Podcast: What does height have to do with disease risk

On this episode of Health Findings in Focus our Investigator Dr. Sridharan Raghavan talks about his recent paper, “A multi-population phenome-wide association study of genetically-predicted height in the Million Veteran Program”. The paper draws on data from the VA Million Veteran Program, which is a national research program to learn how genes, lifestyle, and military exposures affect health and illness. Listen to learn how height might play a role in certain diseases and what this research means.

Publications remain the foremost way we communicate our research. Online, we have our publications by year since 2019.


A slidedoc is a document created using presentation software, where visuals and words unite to illustrate one clear point per page. They're meant to be printed or distributed instead of presented. The result is a medium that can be read more quickly than a document.

Cyberseminars are state-of-the art training and special interest sessions via live web conferences and 24/7 on-demand archived presentations that feature many of our investigators.
