ATSU kicked off its Alumni All-Star Speaker Series in February to celebrate the University’s 125th anniversary. Chris Newey, DO, MS, ’08, returned to the Missouri campus to share his experiences in neuro critical care at University Hospital in Columbia, Missouri. He discussed ischemic strokes and explained the guidelines for managing strokes. According to Dr. Newey, ischemic stroke is the fourth leading cause of death in the United States and is still the leading cause of disability.
“The neuro critical care field is rapidly expanding,” says Dr. Newey. “My work includes critical care medicine, anesthesiology, neurosurgery, neurology, stroke neurology, and bringing together multidisciplinary teams.”
