Proceeds benefit the future John Paul Pryor, MD, FACS Shock Trauma and Resuscitation (STAR) Unit in the new Trauma Center at Penn Presbyterian. On Christmas Day in 2008, Dr. Pryor was serving as a combat surgeon with the U.S. Army Reserve Medical Corp in Iraq when he was killed by mortar shrapnel. His loss has been felt deeply throughout Penn Medicine, the city of Philadelphia and beyond. On March 7th we will celebrate his life as we carry on his legacy of providing excellent care to patients.
