The Milwaukee Army Healthcare Team nominated Taylor for the US Army Educator Tour. The Team cited her willingness to go above and beyond sharing the scholarships and programs in health-related professions offered by the Army. The U.S. Army Recruiting Command chose Taylor in recognition of her dedication to promoting awareness of the Army’s health-related opportunities to current and future pre-med/pre-health students.

Fort Stewart is the home of the Army’s 3rd Infantry Division, 75th Ranger Regiment, and 160th Special Operations Aviation Regiment (SOAR). The medical professionals at the Winn Army Community Hospital and Hunter Army Airfield Clinic on base support all 4,000-plus soldiers and their families.

During the Army Educator Tour, Taylor will skydive with the Army’s premier parachute demonstration team, the Golden Knights, in addition to attending various exhibits hosted by each of the units on base and touring both the community hospital and clinic. Most importantly, Taylor will get to work with and witness firsthand the soldiers and families supported by Army Medicine.

By sharing information about the Army’s programs and scholarships, Taylor is directly developing future medical professionals who will be providing care for soldiers. The tour will also provide the opportunity to network with other university representatives and showcase Michigan Technological University’s dedication to supporting the health and welfare of our troops.
