The health care superheroes in pediatric trauma centers

On this week’s episode, we discuss pediatric Level 1 trauma centers. More specifically, we delve into the synchronized teamwork required to save a child’s life in the most critical moments.

From heart-stopping accidents to life-altering injuries, the world of pediatric trauma care demands exceptional expertise and compassion. Trauma centers are where renowned medical experts, nurses and other amazing health care superheroes intersect with families whose lives have been touched by these heroes of healing.

Joining our conversation today are Dr. John Draus, chief of surgery and medical director at Wolfson’s Children’s Hospital, and Lisa Nichols, trauma program manager.
