Healing by Powerpoint: Returning to Normal with a Keynote Lecture

Nearly two weeks to the hour after the Tucson tragedy, David G. Armstrong, Professor of Surgery at the University of Arizona, completed a keynote lecture to the Connecticut Podiatric Medical Association via video link from Tucson’s University Medical Center (UMC). Armstrong noted, “After what our community and our country have been through this past fortnight, it is a pleasure to get back to some degree of normality. To use the same facilities to talk about healing wounds today that our center was using over the past two weeks to share stories of healing with the world is both profoundly heartwarming and simply an honor.” The lecture, which discussed the latest in team building and technological innovations, was delivered to a symposium chaired by Dr. Marc Lederman and hosted by St. Francis Medical Center in Hartford, Connecticut.
