Advancing Health as Part of a National Community

Many of our researchers (and physicians) at MedStar Health are members of national professional societies. From cardiology to diabetes, there are organizations that exist to support all types of clinicians and fields of medicine.

Not only are our investigators members of these organizations, many of them serve in leadership positions, on their board or chair key committees. In that spirit of advancing health on a broader scale, it is great news that Lauren T. Moffatt, PhD, (Director, Firefighters' Burn and Surgical Research Laboratory at MedStar Washington Hospital Center) will become chair of the Research Committee for the American Burn Association. She will be the first PhD to hold this position in a predominantly surgical society.

Congratulations Lauren! We are proud of your national work and furthering the reputation of MedStar Health research through your continued commitment to advance health.
