Today marks the beginning of an historic arrangement between Arizona and the Republic of Korea to improve Trauma care. The Korea Arizona Trauma Summit began this morning with Arizona’s Governor welcoming the National Assembly Representative of the Democratic Party of Korea and the Minister of Health and Welfare. The Korean group includes several trauma surgeons who will work side by side with Arizona counterparts to understand our trauma system and how to build a similar system in their country. ADHS’s Dr. Ben Bobrow worked with Bob Ramsey from the Ramsey Social Justice Foundation to craft the four-day workshop.
