Army Col. Katrina Walters, U.S. Army Recruiting Command and Army Col. Princess Atunrase, Office of the Army Surgeon General provided a joint breakout session focused on Army Medical Accessions and Recruiting Trends, Challenges and Best Practices.

Col. Walters stated the demand for healthcare professionals has increased and aligns with the national physician shortage. Other issues working against Army medical recruiting include an increasing number of scholarship opportunities in the civilian sector and a long wait for commissions (median is 227 days).

During the presentation Col. Atunrase and Col. Walters made the audience aware of many healthcare trends adding to the difficulty with recruiting. Some of these include population growth; 91 million by 2050; population aging; provider aging; and pervasive ill-health, 6 in 10 U.S. adults suffer from a chronic medical condition and 4 in 10 have two or more.

The team discussed the U.S. Army’s Quality of Life (QOL) initiative and elaborated on the more holistic aspect with special focus on healthcare to better understand the health and mental care needs affecting Soldiers, Army civilians, and families.

Col. Harrison added that this is being accomplished by closely monitoring and resolving healthcare QOL challenges. Lt. Col. Corbett and Lt. Col. Chiquitucto emphasized there is much more work to be done and reiterated that QOL issues are a high priority for the Army.

Dr. King’s leadership and commitment to equality brought national attention to racism and civil rights abuses and led to historic civil rights legislation through multiple nonviolent movements in the late 1950s and ’60s to achieve legal equality for African Americans in the United States.

The Army is committed to the ideals of Dr. King and on this national day of service, we honor his dedication to equity and inclusion.

PORT MORESBY, Papua New Guinea — Machete attacks, tuberculosis, malaria and carjackings are not things commonly associated with laid back island life for members of the 8th Forward Resuscitative and Surgical Detachment.

The 18th Medical Command deployed its 8th FRSD doctors, nurses and medical technicians from the relatively calm Island of Oahu, Hawaii, to work in Port Moresby General Hospital — which is located in the capital city of Papua New Guinea — during the height of its often volatile festive season.
