The in-depth lecture was approved for CME by the WAMC Department of Education and focused on the priorities of care for stabilization of traumatically injured or critical stroke patients, prior to transfer to UNC Hospitals' Level I Trauma Center or the Comprehensive Stroke Center.

"Initially scheduled for a small class, interest grew across the Army medical community so much that CMEs were offered and the event was moved to Weaver Auditorium," said Al Bonifacio, Trauma Program Manager. "As the session began, even event organizers were surprised that over 100 service members attended. This is a huge milestone for outreach as we work to build our relationship with WAMC during their journey to become an ACS Level III Trauma Center. Thanks to Dr. Cadena for her time and effort in providing this high-quality educational experience to our regional partners.”
