This past week, members of the 97th Medical Group welcomed Col. Christopher Grussendorf, Air Education and Training Command surgeon general, and Chief Master Sgt. Donald Cook, AETC chief of enlisted medical force, for a tour of the medical group and opportunities to meet with the group’s Airmen.

The visit highlighted the work of approximately 150 medical group members who are responsible for Airmen and families, supporting health, readiness, and the mission. The visit also highlighted services such as the GroupUp program: a group-based emotion-focused treatment that offers five sessions and teaches Airmen coping skills, emotional regulation, and stress management. 

“This team is essential for getting the job done,” said Grussendorf. “You all find ways to make sure people are taken care of.”
