Hurricane Harvey: Update from Our Texas Leaders

The hearts of the American College of Surgeons (ACS) leadership and staff go out to the people of Texas who are experiencing the continued devastating impact of Hurricane Harvey. We are in regular contact with Courtney M. Townsend, Jr., MD, FACS, ACS President; Barbara Lee Bass, MD, FACS, ACS President-Elect; and Ronald M. Stewart, MD, FACS, Chair, Committee of Trauma, all of whom reside in Texas. They advise that there is no imminent need for us to send surgeons at this time. Federal, state, and local workers remain focused on search and rescue operations. We will communicate with you directly and use Operation Giving Back to collect information.
