The Boston Marathon Bombing: Teamwork in the Face of Disaster

April 15th 2013 was a day few in Boston will ever forget.  Shortly before 3 PM, in the midst of the Boston Marathon, two explosions shook the finish line.  In an instant, a city was in disarray and 264 souls were in need of immediate medical attention.  Dr. Mitchel Harris was on the front lines as Chief of Orthopedic Trauma at the Brigham less than 2 miles away from the bomb sites.  He will share the lessons he and his team learned as they rose to this enormous challenge.
