Protect Your Family and Yourself! African-American men have the highest rates of lung cancer in the U.S. lung cancers are mostly caused by smoking. When you smoke around your family, everyone smokes. There's no safe way to smoke. Menthol cigarettes are just as dangerous as non-menthol cigarettes. It's never too late to quit. Your risk for lung cancer goes down when you quit, no matter how old you are or how long you have smoked. Quitting can be hard, and you may need help. For free help quitting, visit smokefree.gov or call 1-(800)-QUIT-NOW.

In the spirit of Nurse-Tech Week celebration, what better way to close the week by watching this video showcasing the PHENOMENAL medics from the 99th Medical Group, recently named Heroes of Military Medicine Ambassador Award for their response during the Las Vegas shooting on 1 Oct 2017. This will make you proud to be an AIRMAN MEDIC!!! Message from our Air Force Chief, Medical Enlisted Force (CMSgt Steve Cum): "The training we provide for ALL of our medics is so important, they need to set up for success from day one and not rely on spin up training or just in time training. As SrA Wilson said in the video, 'it was flight or fight and we choose to FIGHT!' If we are not ready today we will not be ready tomorrow."
