Blood in Our Streets

A. Brent Eastman, MD

Trauma is the leading cause of death up to age 45, and managing severe trauma has a history dating back millennia. How far have we come in twenty-first-century San Diego and America? If you had sustained a potentially lethal injury in La Jolla in 1964, what would have happened to you? What changed in 1984, after the launch of the San Diego Trauma System? What about the rest of the country, and what does war have to do with it?

Instructor: Brent Eastman is Emeritus Chief Medical Officer and N. Paul Whittier Chair of Trauma at Scripps Health, San Diego. A graduate of the UCSF School of Medicine and Residency in Surgery, Eastman was a founder in 1984 of the San Diego County Trauma System, regarded worldwide as a model for the care of the severely injured. From 2012-13 he served as President of the American College of Surgeons, after earlier service as Chair of the Committee on Trauma.
