AUAB medics adapt to support Afghanistan evacuation
Dr. (Maj.) Elaina Wild, 379th Expeditionary Medical Group chief medical officer, examines the unborn child of a pregnant qualified evacuee from Afghanistan before she gives birth at Al Udeid Air Base, Qatar. The 379th EMDG was not originally postured for neo-natal care, so medical members had to adapt in order to provide care for evacuating mothers in labor and their newborn babies. Since Al Udeid AB became the main stopover location for qualified evacuees from Afghanistan on Aug. 14, 2021, members assigned to the 379th EMDG helped deliver nine babies.
