Greetings JSOM Newsletter Subscribers,

The World Trauma Symposium is right around the corner. Although the JSOM team had initially planned on being at the conference, unfortunately we will be unable to attend this year's event. However, we are taking a strong media and sponsorship role at the conference and encourage everyone to use our materials to gather more information about the JSOM and the important role we play in unconventional and emergency medicine.

We want to take a minute to recognize our friend and Contributing Editor to the JSOM's Ongoing Series (HPO section), Patricia A. Deuster, PhD, MPH, FACSM. She was recently honored with the Distinguished Service Award at the 2021 MHSRS Research Awards. Congratulations, Patricia! For a full list of the award winners, please visit the MHSRS website.
