This Veteran’s Day 2021, we continue to honor the deep, longstanding connection between trauma care at OHSU and service in the U.S. military. OHSU is identified by the American College of Surgeons as one of the top five trauma research programs in the nation. Trauma is the leading cause of death and disability in young people, including those injured in war. During this webinar, three OHSU surgeons and military members, whose careers span combat casualty care and civilian trauma surgery, will discuss how innovations developed on the battlefield are improving surgical outcomes on the home front. They’ll share groundbreaking research in the areas of traumatic brain injury and traumatic shock. You’ll also learn about recent developments at OHSU’s Donald D. Trunkey Center for Civilian and Combat Casualty Care.
