As Air Force Medicine continues to go through organizational change, the MAJCOM Surgeons are hard at work, playing a pivotal role in the Air Force’s ability to stay on the leading edge of Trusted Care healthcare. This month we sat down with Air Education and Training Command’s Surgeon, Col. (Dr.) Gianna R. Zeh, to discuss ongoing improvements, how medical Airmen can succeed, and her personal journey as a leader.
Senior Airman Linda Wilson, an aerospace medical technician with the 99th Medical Operations Squadron at Nellis Air Force Base in Las Vegas, was recognized at the 12th Annual Angels of the Battlefield Awards Gala on October 2, 2018 for extraordinary lifesaving efforts during the deadliest shooting in modern American History.
As the Defense Health Agency assumes authority, direction and control of military treatment facilities, the Air Force Medical Service will remain steadfast on its Trusted Care journey towards higher reliability and Zero Harm.
Airmen may need crowns, retainers, night guards or some other form of dental gear. To provide this, dentists take impressions of the patient’s mouth. Once made, they’re taken to the dental lab where the technicians make a mold from the impression. This is the part patients don’t get to witness.

On Thursday July 12th, the clinic will be closed from 0730-1300 for Readiness Training and open from 1300-1630 for School/Sports physicals.

During clinic closures, if non-emergent care is required, please contact the Nurse Advice Line (NAL) by calling 1-800-TRICARE (874-2273). The NAL will provide instructions or may authorize use of an Urgent Care Center if medically necessary.

The call center and all other clinical areas, to include Pharmacy, will remain open for patients. At all times, if emergency care is required, call 911 or go to the nearest emergency room for treatment.

School and Camp Physicals In Massachusetts, children ages 4 to 17 are required to have physicals for initial enrollment in school and in most summer camps. They are also necessary for participation in sports programs, which require updated physicals every 13 months. The 66th Medical Squadron will host two physical days this summer for initial enrollment in school, sports and in most summer camps. The dates are July 12 from 1:00 to 4 p.m. and Aug. 9 from 7:30 to 11 a.m. Appointments should be scheduled with the child's primary care manager; however, a child may be seen by a different provider depending on availability. If any medical issues beyond the scope of the physical are identified during the appointment, an additional appointment will be scheduled to address those issues. The focus of these appointments is to complete the requirements for the physical and to review the child's immunization record. The patient will also receive any required immunizations during the visit. Upon the completion of the appointment, parents will receive a copy of the Massachusetts School Health form which is valid for enrollment in school, summer camps and sports programs in both Massachusetts and New Hampshire. Individuals relocating to another state should contact that local school system and request copies of the required forms to take to the child's appointment to ensure the physical will be valid at the new school. School and sports physical appointments will be available on a limited basis throughout the summer, so parents are encouraged to make appointments as early as possible. To request an appointment or for more information, call the 66 MDS appointment line at 781-225-6789.
Systems have been restored and all services are now available. Thank you for your patience during the systems outage. The clinic is currently experiencing technical difficulties with all medical systems. The clinic is still open and scheduled appointments will be seen, but there may be a delay and services will be limited. The clinic is not able to provide Radiology, Immunizations, or fill new prescriptions. If you have an appointment scheduled today, you have the option to reschedule by calling 781-225-6789. This post will be updated once all systems have been restored. We appreciate your patience as we work diligently to resolve these issues.
Even though we are an Air Force Military Treatment Facility, we have more sister service active duty members enrolled than AF!#NationalBestFriendsDay
From June 4-14 2018, there will be a base-wide exercise. Please plan accordingly during this time when visiting the clinic. The base will be evaluating readiness and emergency response Some of these scenarios may result in traffic delays both entering and exiting the base, or restrictions in movement around the installation. Delays and disruptions in normal operations should be expected both during and after normal duty hours.
