Re: "Hopkins 24/7" Trauma Surgeon to Speak
Dr. Edward Cornwell, who was featured in last year's acclaimed ABC News documentary, "Hopkins 24/7," for his work with youth and efforts to reduce Baltimore's street violence, will speak at the Johns Hopkins University Homewood campus on Tuesday, March 13, 2001, at 7 p.m.
Cornwell, who is head of trauma surgery at the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine, agreed to take part in a unique lecture series called, "Voyage and Discovery," which each year recruits world-renowned Hopkins physicians and researchers to talk about the story behind their breakthroughs.
In "Hopkins 24/7" Cornwell could be seen responding to gunshot victims in the emergency room and also leading a group of youth through the hospital to show them the effects of bullets on actual people. The topic of his talk will be: "Youth Violence: A Trauma Surgeon's Perspective."
Organized and operated by Hopkins undergraduates, the Voyage and Discovery series aims to get at the very real human drama and detective stories behind the work of some of Hopkins best. Many who have attended past lectures havefound them inspiring, especially for anyone interested in pursuing research or becoming a doctor. All lectures are free and open to the public.
