Approximately 50 Airmen from the 86th Medical Group, Ramstein Air Base, Germany, arrived April 3 at Cincu Military Base, Romania, to participate in the NATO-led medical exercise Vigorous Warrior 19.
Eye injuries in a deployed setting can be a significant setback for any Airman, but new telemedicine capabilities are helping to keep them in the fight. With funding from the 59th Medical Wing, Joint Base San Antonio, Texas, Air Force and Army medical researchers are developing a HIPAA-compliant smart phone application to connect providers downrange with on-call ophthalmologists either in-theater or at a clinic.
This month’s photos feature Airmen from around the globe involved in activities supporting the Air Force medical mission.
The 99th Medical Group at Nellis Air Force Base in Las Vegas offers a wide range of services to maintain Airman readiness and care to their families. What many may not know, is the importance of their plastic surgery practice.
