USAFE-AFAFRICA hosts European-African Military Nursing Exchange Conference

United States Air Forces Europe-Air Forces Africa held the European-African Military Nursing Exchange conference, May 9-11, at Ramstein Air Base.

The conference hosted delegates from military sister services and military delegations from Botswana, Czech Republic, Estonia, Germany, Mauritius, Morocco, Nigeria, North Macedonia, Romania, Slovenia, South Africa, and Tanzania.

The EAMNE conference featured talks centered on its theme “Strength through Resilience,” examining quality of life and resiliency tools for the military health care providers, as well as hands-on training scenarios with military experts in a variety of techniques and equipment. Attendees listened to firsthand accounts of strength while responding to the COVID-19 pandemic and practice techniques like pelvic binder application, intubation, and chest pressure relief.

“When we work together, we grow together,” said Col. Steven Lehr, USAFE-AFAFRICA command surgeon. “These conferences give us the opportunity to come together to share ideas and best practices not just amongst our sister services, but also with our Allies and Partners.”
