Thursday Health.mil News Round-Up: Navy Reservist Learns Importance of Blood Donations, Saves Lives; Care Coalition Supports Wounded, Ill Special Ops Troops; DHA Research & Development working to make war fighters more efficient


The following articles were recently posted on Health.mil:
Navy reservist Petty Officer 2nd Class Carlo Mabini has seen a lot over the course of his military career. He has been deployed three times and has witnessed blood transfusions downrange. Knowing that blood donations can help save lives, Mabini has been a loyal blood donor with the Armed Services Blood Program since 2009, donating nine units over the years . He said that it’s his way of making a difference.
It’s an ethos burned into the minds of generations of American service members to “leave no one behind.” U.S. Special Operations Command and the services are looking at innovative ways to ensure service members get the care they need and deserve. All are working to ensure there are no gaps in care or assistance for these service members.

Forward thinking, creativity and solid knowledge of the mission from a global perspective are key points in keeping U.S. warfighters medically ready for the fight. The Defense Health Agency’s Research, Development, and Acquisition directorate is working towards those overall readiness and resiliency goals by advancing medical knowledge across all service branches.
