More than 1,000 healthcare providers across the nation are now certified to recognize signs 
of environmental exposures in Veterans, ensuring the right kind of care is provided to those who served our country.

WASHINGTON D.C. — The American College of Preventive Medicine (ACPM), in partnership with the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), celebrated a milestone with more than 1,000 health care providers achieving the Military Environmental Exposures (MEE) Level I certification. The MEE certification program provides health care professionals with the vital military environmental exposure training needed to both independently assess and treat Veterans who have exposure-related health concerns and symptoms.

“Ensuring access to care — and more importantly the right kind of care — for our Veteran population represents a key tenet of the ACPM mission,” said ACPM President Mirza Rahman, MD, MPH, FAAFP, FACPM. “It has been an honor to partner with the VA to offer this free certification to any health care professional who wants to be equipped to identify, treat and manage the effects of possible environmental exposures.”

In addition to the Level I certification, ACPM also offers a free Level II certification for providers who want to continue to improve their knowledge and skills. For more information about the MEE program, visit Military Environmental Exposures Certifications or email
