In recognition of Trauma Awareness Month, members of the Tennessee House of Representatives toured Vanderbilt University Medical Center’s adult emergency department, trauma center and helipad. State representatives John Ray Clemmons, Harold Love Jr. and Craig Fitzhugh, along with Allandis Brassel, counsel for U.S. Rep. Jim Cooper, met with leaders from Emergency Medicine, Trauma and LifeFlight to gain first-hand perspective of trauma services at VUMC. Pictured from left are: Clemmons; Alex Jahangir, M.D., medical director of the Center for Trauma, Burn, and Emergency Surgery at Vanderbilt; Lis Henley, R.N., EMT, LifeFlight Program Director; and Fitzhugh.
