Last Chance To Comment on BRAC Impact

The public comment period on the planned relocation of Walter Reed to the National Naval Medical Center ends on Wednesday, Jan. 28. NIH has closely followed this issue because of its impact on local traffic and services and has concluded that: NIH employees and patients will be adversely impacted by the BRAC move; NIH’s ability to attract and retain a high-quality workforce will be affected; and NIH must take internal and external measures to mitigate the impact of BRAC, both short- and long-term. Comments can be submitted to the Navy via email at or by fax at (301) 295-5020. Comments can also be mailed to BRAC Program Manager, Navy Medicine National Capital Area, 8901 Rockville Pike, Bethesda, MD 20889-5600.
