The Massachusetts Chapter of the American College of Surgeons (ACS) honored President Pro Tempore Richard T. Moore (D- Uxbridge) and Representative Viriato Manuel deMacedo (R-Plymouth) for their advocacy and leadership in helping to secure funding for 1.5 full-time positions for the Massachusetts State Trauma Registry. The event took place on Tuesday, September 30, 2014 in the Ether Dome at Massachusetts General Hospital. The Department of Public Health will use these positions to study trauma care in Massachusetts and research the outcomes of every trauma patient who visits an emergency department in the state. Funding for these positions was a part of the overall all state budget for 2014-2015 which was passed by the legislature and signed by Governor Deval L. Patrick (D) in August.

Join your colleagues and become a member of the Chapter that serves as a critical grassroots organization of the national College. It is also the backbone of the College’s “farm system” for recruiting talented young surgeons to engage in local and national activities. The Chapter provides an important link to our rich local surgical heritage and a mechanism by which young surgeons can maintain close contacts with colleagues throughout the State.
