This website serves as:
  • An archive for an HSR&D COIN.  Archive pages and information will be identified as such throughout the website.
  • A brief introduction to the Gainesville Veterans Rural Health Resource Center (VRHRCs), which is an Office of Rural Health (ORH) field-based satellite office serving as a hub of rural health care research, innovation, and dissemination.

The Center of Innovation on Disability and Rehabilitation Research (CINDRR) was previously a Health Services Research and Development (HSR&D) Center of Innovation (COIN) funded from 2013 to 2019.  CINDRR investigators were located in both Gainesville and Tampa, Florida, and are continuing the work of CINDRR with the same collaborations and same mission: To optimize rehabilitation services for Veterans with disabilities to improve their health and quality of life.

The support of HSR&D was invaluable in creating a research foundation that investigators are continuing to build on. Post-CINDRR funding for these investigators now comes from many other sources, for example, from VA investigator-initiated research projects; from special project funding from the Office of Rural Health, the Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation Service, and other national VHA program offices; from non-VA sources such as the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and the National Endowment for the Arts; and from non-Federal sources such as the Neilsen Foundation.
