GSMSG team members, who are U.S. military special operations veterans, nurse practitioners and physician assistants, triage some of the nearly 3,000 patients seen over the course of the week.
GSMSG providers triage women, many of whom have not had access to obstetric or gynecological specialists, for further Ob/Gyn care. Nearly 100 women were provided with prenatal or pregnancy education and care.
