Kicking off the first of our series on the latest topics in surgery, we begin with a point-counterpoint style discussion with Dr. Brendan Campbell, a member of the ACS committee on trauma FAST workgroup, and Dr. Joseph Sakran, a prominent advocate for firearm injury prevention. This episode was recorded at the APSA 2019 Annual Meeting with a bonus full length recording of Dr. Sakran's guest presentation from the meeting.

Dr. Carol Scott-Conner is a prolific surgeon writer whose first publication, Operative Anatomy, is a fantastic textbook for junior residents to prepare for cases. She talks to us about writing, her work as a consultant with NASA, and provides an excellent T&T segment on lymphedema. We hope you enjoy this episode!
