L. D. Britt, MD, MPH, Brickhouse Professor and Chair of Surgery, has published his third textbook. Titled "Acute Care Surgery," the 64-chapter book highlights topics such as cutting-edge surgical technology, management paradigms, trauma, critical care and emergency general surgery. It also provides guidance on evidence-based care for acutely ill surgical patients.

Also, Dr. Britt recently was selected to serve as the lecturer for the Dr. John J. Krueger Annual Lectureship event in November in Virginia Beach. In its 14th year, the Krueger Lectureship is named in honor of a pathologist and leader in both the medical and lay communities. Dr. Krueger was a strong proponent of high-quality medicine and was involved in many charities.
