Fifteen American Soldiers traveled more than 10,000 miles from the U.S. to Ghana to conduct U.S. Army Africa’s Medical Readiness Training Exercise Feb. 5-24. The MEDRETE team included twelve active duty Soldiers from Brooke Army Medical Center in San Antonio, Texas, and three North Dakota Army National Guard Soldiers assigned to the state medical detachment in Bismarck.
William Beaumont Army Medical Center hosted the Army Trauma Training Center’s Combat Extremity Surgery Course in coordination with Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center in El Paso, Texas, recently.
The course provided deploying surgeons, physician assistants, nurse practitioners and combat medics from all over the Army with the training and skills necessary to increase readiness and manage extremity trauma in a deployed environment.
Beginning Thursday, eligible military dependents enrolled in grades six through 12 in the Belton Independent School District can receive primary care services at a new clinic at Belton High School, according to post hospital officials.
The adolescent medicine team will provide comprehensive primary care services to include physical exams, immunizations, and the management of minor illnesses and injuries. Classroom consultation on wellness issues and referrals to specialty care also are available.
