Trauma

The New Hanover Regional Medical Center may be heightening security measures to more safely treat victims of violent gang activity. Over the weekend, Wilmington’s annual Trauma, Emergency and Acute Care Symposium touched down at the convention center. For the first time in the symposium’s 25-year history, North Carolina gang investigators were on hand to caution area medical professionals about treating gang members.

Emergency responders and other healthcare providers are gathering Friday and Saturday for the 23rd annual Trauma and Emergency Symposium in downtown Wilmington.
