This is the April 26, 2018 hearing titled "Department of Defense Appropriations for Fiscal Year 2019," held before the U.S. Senate Subcommittee of the Committee on Appropriations. From the opening statement of Nadja West: "Our Army must remain prepared to respond when called upon and Army Medicine is postured to support our Joint Force with scalable medical capabilities to support the full range of military operations, as well as for natural and manmade disasters, and potential infectious disease threats. We have the opportunity to change and challenge the status quo and make significant improvements in healthcare as we implement the reforms outlined in the fiscal year 2017 NDAA (National Defense Authorization Act). [...] Readiness permeates everything we do and has two essential components: an Army that is ready and a medical force within our Army that is ready. And so, readiness begins with a fit and healthy Army that serves as a foundation of a strong national defense." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Richard C. Shelby, Nadja West, C. Forrest Faison III, Mark A. Ediger, and Stacy Cummings.
