Boston Marathon Doctor Speaks On Mass Casualty

Posted: Updated:

Tonight, a medical provider who was present at last year's Boston Marathon bombing will be the featured speaker at a seminar on mass casualty response, held in connection with the North Dakota Athletic Trainers Association annual meeting.

Doctor Wanda Swiger was a member of the medical team that provided coverage at the finish line of the 2013 Boston Marathon. She will be talking about the bombing and giving tips on how to prepare plans for mass casualties at events.

"The finalized version should be finalized one to two months before your major event. That means that you really want to make sure that you don't work in silos. So, in other words, Minot State wouldn't work independently of the city of Minot or the state of North Dakota. You want to make sure that you have cross disciplinary conversations at the local level, as well as the state level, as well as the federal level," Swiger says.

The program starts at 7 p.m. on the second floor of Swain Hall at MSU.
