Premiered at the 2018 AFMS Senior Leadership Workshop, this video highlights how Airmen from all 17 enlisted medical career fields are warfighters who should feel proud of their wartime service and responsibilities. They are the backbone of Air Force Medical Service and disruptive innovators, in which success or failure rests on their shoulders.
Deployed mental health providers work closely with leadership to help maintain warfighter resiliency and readiness. Service members are away from their usual support systems during deployment, and because the environment and stress puts them in unusual situations, they require innovative and flexible forms of mental health care.
Check out the highlights of what happened around the AFMS during November 2018.
As the Air Force Medical Service undergoes transformation, medical Airmen maintain an unwavering commitment to readiness and Trusted Care.
