NASSAU, BAHAMAS – A neurotrauma workshop is being held in on New Providence and Grand Bahama, sharing critical, live-saving training.

Our Sasha Lightbourne has this report.



As a result of an accident that lead to the death of his aunt, Bahamian neurosurgeon, former NFL player and Rhodes scholar Dr. Myron Rolle decided to pursue medical studies in head trauma.

Through the Caribbean Neurosurgery Foundation, Dr. Rolle provides a private, non-governmental source of funding for research and training in neurological surgery in the Caribbean.

Today he held his first workshop right here at home, with just over 60 nurses from across the country.

Minister of Health Dr. Michael Darville says learning about head trauma is vital especially when it comes to accidents on our Family Islands.

Fellow neurosurgeon and Chief Consultant of Neurological Surgery at the Princess Margaret Hospital (PMH) Dr. Magnus Ekedede admonished the nurses to take in as much as they could from Dr. Rolle.

The workshop continues in Grand Bahama tomorrow with 40 nurses.
