About the lecture
Head and brain trauma are two of the most common mechanisms of injury on the battlefield. Medical professionals must act quickly with the best available guidelines to treat injured war fighters. How do advances in military trauma care influence the way civilian trauma care is delivered?
Martin Schreiber, M.D., professor of surgery in the OHSU School of Medicine, has served in Iraq and Afghanistan and is a leader in the trauma community. His research and experience in military theater has saved lives and is being incorporated into trauma care at OHSU and around the country. Results of his studies have wide-reaching implications for situations we all hope to avoid, but are critical when patients are the most vulnerable.
Attend this lecture to get a behind-the-scenes perspective from a military physician and learn how Schreiber’s work is improving treatments at home for patients with serious trauma.
Lectures are free and open to the public, but seating is limited and reservations are requested. Register today.
