AMERICUS, GA (WALB) - An assistant professor at Georgia Southwestern State University will soon take her nursing skills to Afghanistan.
Lieutenant Colonel Ramona Mulleins-Foreman teaches graduate students studying family nursing.
The instructor will lead a Forward Surgical Team to care for U.S. troops in the rural areas of Afghanistan.
She has been in the Army for more than 30 years, and this won't be her first deployment.
However, this one will definitely affect how she teaches when she returns.
"I think it'll enhance it actually," said Mulleins-Foreman. "Just based on the leadership and the examples I can bring back to students about what we solve on a medical side."
Mulleins-Foreman deploys in June and will be in Afghanistan for nine months before returning back home.
