BUFFALO, N.Y. -- The University at Buffalo School of Nursing will host a presentation by Rear Adm. Rebecca McCormick-Boyle on Sept. 11 from noon to 1 p.m. in 125 Kapoor Hall on UB's South Campus.
McCormick-Boyle is chief of staff of the U.S. Navy Bureau of Medicine and Surgery, the headquarters of Navy and Marine Corps Medicine. A Buffalo native and graduate of the UB nursing school, she will address UB students, faculty and staff as part of Buffalo Navy Week.
The Admiral will discuss Navy Medicine's humanitarian assistance, disaster response missions, battlefield medicine and role in maritime strategy.
Buffalo is one of 15 selected cities where America's Navy will "come home" in 2012, giving area residents an opportunity to meet sailors and learn about the Navy's capabilities and relevance to national security.
Navy Weeks are designed to show Americans the investment they make in their Navy and increase awareness in cities that do not have a significant Navy presence.
