Were you deployed to the Gulf Theater of Operations?

Do you have extreme fatigue, mood disturbances and joint and muscle pain?

Did your service include deployment to the "Gulf Theater of Operations" between August 1990 and December 1992?
(Includes Iraq, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Qatar, the United Arab Emirates, Oman, the Gulf of Aden, the Gulf of Oman, the Persian Gulf, the Arabian Sea, the Red Sea, and the airspace above all of these locations)

If so, you may be eligible to participate in a study on Gulf War Illness (GWI). New England School of Acupuncture (NESA) is looking for volunteers to participate in a study on the effectiveness of acupuncture in the treatment of GWI. In exchange for your participation you will receive free acupuncture treatments and a small payment. If you are interested in learning more about this study and to see if you qualify, please contact NESA at 617-558-1788 x269.

This study is part of a research program funded by the Department of Defense.
