Atrium Health Navicent Resident Wins Trauma Research Competition

Dr. Brett Howard to Represent State in November

MACON, GA (Tuesday, October 21, 2014) – Atrium Health Navicent congratulates Dr. Brett Howard, a third year resident who recently won first place in the American College of Surgeons Georgia Committee on Trauma Resident Research competition.

As first place winner from Georgia, Dr. Howard will represent the state in the American College of Surgeons Southeast Region competition in November.

The contest was hosted by Georgia Regents University (GRU) in Augusta, Ga. Residents from across the state competed in the contest, including those from Atlanta Medical Center, Emory University Hospital, GRU and Morehouse College.
