A new beginning at the Museum and two AMEDD farewells
The Foundation is pleased to announce the debut of a new public website for the US Army Medical Museum
Based on an internal needs assessment, combined with the recommendation of an external review panel, the AMEDD Museum staff felt strongly that the Museum was in need of a new, more user-friendly webpage for the public. While the Museum already has a public webpage under the military’s .mil domain, this site often frustrates civilian users who may not be able to easily access or navigate this military webpage. In full agreement, the Foundation agreed to fund the creation and maintenance of a new public website. Aimed at attracting public interest in not only visiting the Museum but the history of Army Medicine as well, this exciting and engaging new webpage provides details on how to visit, the extraordinary collection available to view, as well as information and links to a wide range of Army medical topics.
