Several physicians are delivering live virtual training sessions on trauma for medical professionals and health care workers on the frontlines.

Nirav Patel, MD — a trauma acute care surgeon, one of the panelists for the program and a clinical associate professor of Surgery at the UArizona College of Medicine – Phoenix — says the trainings are invaluable for participants.
