Welcome from the Trauma Symposium Chairman

Dear Attendees:

ldiebelThank you for making the Detroit Trauma Symposium the largest, continuously running symposium on trauma medicine in the world. Thanks to you, we are celebrating our 63rd anniversary this year. We hope the celebrations live up to your expectations.

First, review the scheduled speakers this year. I hope you’ll agree it’s another great lineup.

Second, consider the sunrise sessions. Your positive response to these opportunities made it a pleasure to schedule them again.

Thank you for coming. We are proud that the Detroit Trauma Symposium attracts not only distinguished trauma physicians but trauma nurses, surgery and emergency medicine residents, EMTs, allied health personnel, and medical students. The audience has continued to grow from the State of Michigan to nearly every state in the U.S. plus Canada. We invite you to take advantage of the networking opportunities throughout the symposium to connect with current and future colleagues from the great field of trauma medicine.

We always welcome your comments and suggestions. We have used them every year to be responsive to your interests. Hopefully, we have improved. Please keep us in mind when you have ideas for future symposium.
