WASHINGTON (NNS) -- Navy Medicine announced the launch of its new blog July 5, designed to facilitate a unique and constructive two-way dialogue between Navy Medicine and its stakeholders, including service members and their families.

"My hope is that this open forum will serve to inform and generate lively discussion all across our enterprise and around the world," said Vice Adm. Adam M. Robinson, Jr., U.S. Navy surgeon general, and chief, Bureau of Medicine and Surgery (BUMED).

Navy Medicine is committed to delivering meaningful and current information on its global operations while garnering feedback from the medical community and those Navy Medicine serves.

Blog topics will include Navy Medicine's support of global operations, humanitarian aid and disaster relief, stories about the courage and sacrifice of Navy Medicine, noteworthy research and development, and discussion items relevant to BUMED and Navy Medicine.

"With the spirit of commitment and service in mind, let us begin the discussion of how we can best meet our current and future challenges," said Robinson. "I encourage all readers and bloggers, no matter their rank, position, or location, to provide constructive feedback on our goals and policies, because a good idea knows no rank."

The Navy Medicine blog is available at:
