Our support helped secure two keynote speakers for the 2013 Wake Forest Baptist Health - Brenner Children's Hospital Pediatric Trauma Conference on Nov. 4-5 at Bridger Field House in Winston-Salem, N.C. The goal of the conference is to assist health care professionals,
who care for or have an interest in pediatric trauma patients, to gain current
knowledge about trauma care from the pre-hospital phase through discharge.
As part of CIPT's education initiatives, we funded special guest speakers Dr. Patrick Broderick from Danbury Hospital in Newtown, Conn., and Maria McMahon from Boston Children’s Hospital. They discussed how two pivotal national events in 2013 affected the treatment for pediatric trauma patients.
