Gwinnett Medical Center Hosted Yes 2 Save Lives Rally

10.28.2010

 Lawrenceville, Ga. (October 28, 2010) – Gwinnett Medical Center (GMC) hosted a Yes 2 Save Lives rally on the front lawn of the Lawrenceville campus. More than 125 people attended the rally to promote awareness about Amendment 2.

 

Speakers from GMC included Romeo Massoud, MD, and John Harvey, MD, trauma surgeons; Phil Wolfe, president and CEO; Gina Solomon, trauma program manager; and Nancy Charron, director of laboratory services, who gave a testimonial about her family’s use of trauma services after her husband was badly injured in a motorcycle accident.

 

A trauma patient's chances of survival increase dramatically if he or she receives care within the "golden hour" immediately following injury. “Rapid response by trained pre-hospital providers in ground and air ambulances is critical. So is the distance to the nearest trauma center,” says Solomon.
