SE VIEW, its Co-investigators and Administrative Core, has launched Year 1 implementation of 13 community-based research and service outreach programs, designed to reduce health disparities. These efforts are expected to reduce the rejection rate as well as improve the enlistment opportunities and tenure of active duty military personnel. The Administrative Core delivered strategic consultation, infrastructure, and quality process support to ensure proper directional, logistics, financial transactions, regulatory compliance, collaborative exchange, community capacity-building, and execution alignments with all stated goals and objectives. An evaluation planning process, inclusive of an evaluation logic model to identify SE VIEW success objectives, was developed and is being implemented. The 13 community-based research and service outreach programs are actively aligned under three domains. SE VIEW provided 1. educational programs e.g. a national conference on health disparities 2. preventative medicine, health and wellness programs e.g. a health information technology network for ruralcommunity hospitals and 3. community partnerships and outreach programs e.g. web-based resources for mobile health screening and patient navigation services. Year 1 programmatic activities, infrastructure, collaborative exchange, evaluation priorities, and ongoing process supports will drive Year 2 advances and serve as foundational for SE VIEW achievement of its stated goals.
