Mississippi Trauma Care System Foundation
Navigating Disparities in Trauma Care
May 1 - May 4, 2023
WITH SPECIAL PRE-SYMPOSIUM COURSES ON Monday, May 1 and Tuesday, May 2, 2023
The Mississippi Trauma Care System Foundation is pleased to host the third annual statewide trauma symposium at the Golden Nugget Resort and Casino in beautiful Biloxi, MS. This year's conference offers trauma center and ambulance service participants the opportunity to assemble as a statewide team. The 2023 theme will address disparities in trauma care. Speakers are selected to present subject matter on identifying, eliminating, or safely navigating care disparities. Speakers from in-state and out-of-state Level I trauma centers and Level II centers are on the agenda.
This four-day event is a comprehensive learning opportunity that begins with two days of pre-conference skills and certifications May 1-2. Four tracks will be available—a Cadaver Lab Track, Registry Track, Skills Track, and ABLS track. The courses are scheduled and duplicated to allow attendees the opportunity to fill their days during the pre-course training and participate in most, if not all offerings.
The MS Trauma Symposium proper will kick off with registration in the pre-conference area and a welcome reception poolside on Tuesday evening, May 2, 2023. On Wednesday morning, May 3, 2023, David Hall, the Director of the Office of EMS and Acute Care Systems, State EMS Director, Mississippi State Department of Health, begins a day of lectures providing information on the current and future state of the trauma system. The first day combines general and breakout sessions for pre-hospital and hospital tracks. The day will end with a banquet, awards presentations, and live entertainment.
Thursday, May 4, 2023, will start with breakout sessions and culminate with all attendees joining a lunch and learn format hosted by Duncan Donald, MD FACS, Mississippi Trauma Medical Director, and an All-Star panel of experts.
