We moved into our new offices at Wake Forest Biotech Place in downtown Winston-Salem in Feb. We celebrated our grand opening after our semiannual Advisory Board meeting in March with food, drinks and tours of the facility.
The building now known as Wake Forest Biotech Place was built in 1937 by R.J. Reynolds Tobacco Company, and is 242,000 sq. ft. with 65,869 glass blocks composing the fašade.
Violence-related injuries result in approximately 1,800 youths per day receiving medical care in our nation's hospitals. Dr. Veach's team has developed a model for violence intervention with hospitalized trauma patients aged 15-20.
