USAMRDC Spotlights Future of Military Medicine with 'Capability Days' Event
The U.S. Army Medical Research and Development Command will host a Capability Days event from April 25-28 at Fort Detrick. The event will showcase the importance and direct impact of military medical research, development and acquisition through live demos, capability presentations and discussions on emerging topics with key subject matter experts.
The event will consist of a pair of two-day sessions. The first session will take place on April 25 and 26, with the second session taking place on April 27 and 28. The first day of each session will focus on S&T requirements processes and feature presentations from the command's research laboratories. Attendees will also have an opportunity to experience a real world Chem/Bio scenario. Day two will feature live demonstrations of medical capabilities from a Soldier's initial entry in to the Army, through deployment and witness a casualty simulation from point of injury to evacuation.
"From illness to injury, MRDC remains the only organization solely focused on addressing the military's unique medical readiness requirements," said Brig. Gen. Anthony McQueen, Commanding General of USAMRDC and Fort Detrick, Maryland. "We're excited to show the many ways in which we're keeping the Warfighter ready and resilient."
