TRIAD team shares research in medical counter measures for trauma victims with Rep. Jason Crow.Dec 2, 2022
U.S. Rep. Jason Crow visited the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus on Monday to learn more about current programs and research on the campus that address the U.S. military’s medical needs, including solutions in combat casualty care, critical and emergency care, surgical trauma, and acute mental health. The Center for Combat Medicine and Battlefield (COMBAT) Research hosted the visit that included additional CU leadership and research groups for a supportive discussion on current military medical challenges.
The visit with Crow, who is a former Army Ranger and current member of the Armed Service Committee, highlighted the importance of creating scientific breakthroughs that provide critical care for service members on and off the battlefield.
COMBAT's leadership, including Colonel Vik Bebarta, MD, and Brigadier General (Ret) Kathleen Flarity, DNP, PhD, helped guide discussion during the visit and provided Crow with information on the progress the center has made over the past few years.
“Our work exists to change policy and practice that benefits both military and civilian communities, so we are grateful the center’s mission matches Rep. Crow’s larger vision and interest area for national security,” says Bebarta, director for COMBAT and professor of emergency medicine at the CU School of Medicine.
