Shriners Hospital Salutes Women in Medicine! This month the American Medical Association is celebrating Women in Medicine. The Northern California Shriners Hospital is joining the celebration by highlighting the contributions of its outstanding team of female physicians – including Dr. Tina Palmieri, Assistant Chief of Burns.
A member of the Board of Trustees for the American Burn Association (ABA), Dr. Palmieri served as ABA president in 2013. Her leadership in the ABA extends to her research interests. She is a founding member of the Burn Multicenter Trials Group and Director of the Data Coordinating Center, which is the hub of the ABA’s multicenter trials network.
With expertise in both burn surgery and critical care, Dr. Palmieri also serves as professor and Director of the Firefighters Burn Center at the University of California, Davis, where she extends her expertise to adults. Please join us in thanking Dr. Palmieri for making a positive difference in the lives of children.
