Nearly 80 enlisted and commissioned U.S. Navy medical professionals are participated in one of Navy Medicine's largest community outreach efforts in the Southeast in May 2012 as part of an Innovative Readiness Training (IRT) mission designed to provide assistance to under-serviced communities.
Alabama Care 2012, is part of the Department of Defense (DoD)-supported IRT effort, an initiative designed to improve military readiness while simultaneously providing quality services to communities throughout America.
The project is a multiservice mission comprised of active duty, Reserve, and National Guard members from Navy, Army and Air Force components.
Service members worked together to set up field-operated medical facilities in the three medically underserved and economically-depressed communities of Selma, Demopolis and Hayneville. Although the primary focus of military medical professionals participating in the exercise is to conduct deployment and readiness training, U.S. Armed Forces participants provided free medical, dental, pharmaceutical and ophthalmology services to the community.
