Have you served in the Armed Forces? Are you dealing with stress, anxiety, or insomnia due to a traumatic event while serving? If so, see if the HONOR Study is right for you.

US Warfighters are exposed to high levels of stress and risk over prolonged periods of time. Many men and women who serve their country experience traumatic events that can have lingering effects – such as anxiety, insomnia, or nightmares.

If this has happened to you, you may qualify to participate in a new, confidential clinical research study (The HONOR Study). The study is for an investigational drug that may help improve trauma-related symptoms, including sleep disturbances. There is no cost to participate, and you will also be compensated for your time and travel.
