Congratulations Dr. E. Moore!
We are proud to announce that the trauma center at Denver Health has been renamed after one of our very own PTS members, Dr. Eugene Moore.
The Panamerican Trauma Society is proud to announce the sponsorship of multi-center studies to facilitate the design and execution of multi-center projects.
The purpose of this initiative is to encourage researchers from different centers to collaborate in studies of mutual interest. The collaborative projects must be initiated by the researchers, who will use their resources to develop their proposals.
