We are pleased to report on the success of the second annual Surgical Advocacy Summit at the State House on Beacon Hill in Boston on November 19, 2013 that was sponsored by the Massachusetts Chapter of the American College of Surgeons (MCACS). There were over 100 participants including surgeons, medical personnel and legislators and their aides. A panel discussion about "The Surgical Experience and Impressions of the Marathon Bombing on April 15" was moderated by Mr. Steven Baddour and there were presentations by Dr. Frederick Millham of Newton-Wellesley Hospital and Chairman of the State Trauma Committee, Dr. George Velmahos of Mass General Hospital, Dr. Peter Burke of Boston Medical Center, and Dr. Russell Nauta of Mount Auburn Hospital. Mr. Robert DeLeo, the Speaker of the House of Representatives, received the second John Collins Warren Award. Senate President Therese Murray presented citations to representatives of the State's trauma centers and registrants met personally with their legislators and aides. A “white paper” was presented to the legislators and an article about the event was posted in the Boston Globe on November 19th. Photos of the event can be viewed here.
