WHAT:

  • The Institute of Medicine (IOM) hosts its fourth and final workshop to discuss its comprehensive reportHospital-Based Emergency Care: At the Breaking Point.

  • Interview opportunities with Dr. Thomas Russell, Executive Director of the American College of Surgeons (ACS), and Dr. Wayne Meredith, Chairman and Director of the Division of Sciences at Wake Forest University School of Medicine in Winston-Salem, N.C., and Medical Director of Trauma Programs of the ACS.

  • Monday, December 11th, 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

WHERE:
