Committee on Trauma

Thank you for your interest in being part of the revamped Georgia state Committee on Trauma.  For those of you who don’t know me, I am a long standing member of our trauma provider community and I chaired the COT from 2010-2016.  I have been asked to do another three year term and I appreciate each of you stepping forward to be involved.
We will have four Vice Chairs for the next three years
  • Dr. Omar Danner, Morehouse School of Medicine and Grady Memorial Hospital, will be tasked with forming an injury prevention committee and starting to understand the statewide needs for injury prevention.
  • Dr. Amy Wyrzykowski, Atlanta Medical Center, will be tasked with creating a repository for trauma guidelines for state centers who participate in the collaborative and the COT.
  • Dr. Heather MacNew, Memorial Hospital, will be tasked with organizing our ATLS programs.
  • Dr. Benjie Christie, Navicent Hospital, will be tasked with growing and organizing our membership.

Please see below for the link to the membership application.  We are asking that you complete the application and pay the annual $100 membership fee.

Thanks again for your interest and I look forward to moving the Ga COT forward.
