165 – Topics Outside the Box: Bullets go deeper than you think
I’m bringing two powerhouse Trauma Surgeons to chat about the outside of the box ways they’re connecting with their communities. Dr. Laurie Punch practices at Barnes – Jewish Hospital in St. Louis, Missouri. Dr. Brian Williams practices at the University of Chicago in Chicago, Illinois. We’re focusing on how violence is a public health issue and the long-lasting effects it has on communities.
Here’s what you’ll learn in this episode:
- What’s it like being on the police review boards for their respective cities
- Punch’s decision to live in Ferguson, Missouri
- We discuss should trauma surgeons live in the neighborhoods they serve
- Their experience with treating patients with Covid-19
