State by state, our nation’s response to trauma care has been built on the concept of working together to get the right patient to the right place in the right time.  The model of the regional trauma system, established approximately 50 years ago, has evolved to include other the time-sensitive health conditions such as stroke, STEMI, sepsis, and mental illness.  These lessons learned have shaped the infrastructure and systems of care for all time sensitive conditions.  Join us at the American Trauma Society Annual Meeting where trauma survivor Todd Maxson, MD, Arkansas Children’s Hospital and stroke survivor Ron Stewart, MD, University Hospital, San Antonio, Texas will discuss their personal stories as patients receiving life-saving care from systems they previously helped to develop.
