These participants are responsible for the care of our military men and women affected by traumatic brain injuries.
The University's School of Medicine was announced as being the accrediting provider for the activity and the SLU logo and accreditation statements were posted on the three jumbo screens at the start of each session.
The keynote address was given by LTG Eric B. Schoomaker, M.D., Ph.D., Surgeon General/Commander, and U.S. Army Medical Command.
More than 100 other faculty presented at the summit and the only glitch was the earthquake on Tuesday that caused the cancellation of the afternoon sessions.
The School of Medicine Continuing Medical Education program recruited the School of Nursing and the School of Social Work to collaborate on this activity.
Tammi Mooshegian, CME Program Director, L. James Willmore, MD, CME Accrediting Director, and Daniel L.

The CME program is developing a digital video library on medical education topics for future distant learning broadcasts to offsite training locations.This and other government related CME sponsored activities have been coordinated through an educational partnership with Swank HealthCare.
