Trauma continues to be the leading cause of morbidity and mortality for people 1-44 years of age, killing more young Americans than cancer, heart disease, and stroke combined. It claims a life every six minutes and is responsible for serious disability every three seconds.
Yet more people are surviving critical injuries than ever before, thanks to advanced trauma skills training.
The continuing education of our community health care professionals is part of our ongoing commitment to ensure that Cambridge has access to the highest quality medical care in the southeastern Ohio region.
