SGM Wanda Rich-Morrison will represent the Post Deployment Health Reassessment Program (PDHRA), mandated by the Assistant Secretary of Defense for Health Affairs in March 2005 and designed to identify and address health concerns, with specific emphasis on mental health, that have emerged over time since deployment. The PDHRA provides for a second health assessment using DD Form 2900 during the three- to six-month time period after return from deployment, ideally at the three- to four-month mark. The reassessment is scheduled for completion before the end of 180 days after return so that Reserve Component members have the option of treatment using their TRICARE health benefit.
