Successful first run for the annual Trauma Conference International meeting

Trauma Conference International is the first true shared event of its kind. Equally represented by surgeons from Canada, the US and Latin America, the event is dedicated to cross-discipline education and offers a truly bilingual program. “All slides are in English and Spanish and all talks are translated live into either language depending on the speaker's mother tongue,” said Dr. Neil Parry, Associate Professor, Division of General Surgery, and Medical Director of the Trauma Program for London Health Sciences Centre. Dr. Parry is one of two Canadian board members and co-organized the symposium. 

Giving attendees the option to attend in person or via the internet, the event had a very successful first run. More than 50 hospitals signed up for the live simulcast, reaching an estimated audience of 1000 attendees.
