Gulf War Illness - Research at the Roskamp Institue in Sarasota


The Roskamp Institute GWI Clinical Studies
Date: August 15, 2022

Good Afternoon All,

My name is Dakota Helgager from The Roskamp Institute in Sarasota, FL located on Whitefield Ave. We are a neurology clinic and research institute. We have several clinical trials going on regarding Gulf War Illness involving veterans who served in the Gulf War 1990-1991. I am reaching out to you as we are seeking volunteers to take part in the clinical studies being conducted at our Institute. Please see attached flyers. These studies range from the use of natural supplement testing to gathering information about general health and well-being of GW veterans. All of these research studies are geared at finding ways to improve the health of veterans with GWI. If possible, posting flyers and letting your members know of our studies will be a tremendous help for the recruitment of our studies. 

We thank you in advance for your assistance and please contact me at (941) – 256 – 8019 ext. 3008, email: for more information, questions, or concerns. Our website is for more information regarding the trials and clinic.
