U.S. Army and Air Force medical professionals with the Vermont National Guard are working for the next two weeks at the Thies Regional Hospital, and two smaller medical centers in and around Thies, Senegal. The Soldiers and Airmen are part of a Medical Readiness Exercise (MEDREX) organized by the State Partnership Program (SPP) and administered by National Guard Bureau. The MEDREX allows medical personnel from the U.S. military and partner nations to exchange medical procedures and strengthen treatment capabilities. The exercise exposes participants to unique medical delivery methods, and ultimately improve their capacity to assess and deliver medical care. The Vermont National Guard and Senegal have been partnered through SPP since 2008.
