Medics provide health care to remote Alaska

Maj. Jennifer Sur-Watanabe stands in front of the Atmautluak clinic at 8:30 a.m. in sub-zero temperatures with the wind chill. The clinic had an office, two exam rooms and a storage/rest room with no running water. Major Sur-Watanabe, a staff ER nurse, represented the 624th Aeromedical Staging Squadron at this year’s Operation Arctic Care, a joint military medical readiness exercise that brings no-cost health care, health education and veterinary services to underserved people in Alaska’s Yukon-Kuskokwim Delta region.
