Zach Collins visits Sam Houston Medical Education and Training Campus

The Spurs and USAA’s Salute Night ties on with Collins’ visit

Per the Spurs press release:

Zach was invited to visit Fort Sam Houston’s Medical Education and Training Campus (METC) today along with USAA, the Official Military Appreciation Partner of the Spurs. METC is a United States Department of Defense campus that offers nearly 50 programs in which active Military students can enroll. On campus, Zach had the opportunity to visit a combat trauma patient simulator lab where students taught him how to apply a tourniquet. He also assisted with a mock laparoscopic surgery in the operating room, led by students and instructors.

Since the 2015-16 season, USAA has hosted a current Spurs player at a San Antonio military installation to help showcase the work that military personnel do here in San Antonio on a daily basis. Salute Night, presented by USAA, will take place this upcoming Saturday, Jan. 27 as the Spurs host the Minnesota Timberwolves at Frost Bank Center.
