Mayo Clinic doctors highlight Trauma Awareness Month in May
Mayo Clinic experts focus attention on prevention
ROCHESTER, Minn. (WKBT) – Trauma impacts people of all ages. Mayo Clinic doctors are educating people on ways to reduce the likelihood of trauma.
Drs. Kyle and Katie McKenzie’s 3-year-old daughter, Evelyn, was severely injured in a car crash, even while safely buckled into her car seat. She spent the next 46 days re-learning how to roll over, sit up, eat, crawl, walk and talk again, but the car seat saved her life.
“She didn’t have any broken bones. I don’t think she had a cut or a bruise on her,” said Katie McKenzie, who is also a primary care physician at Olmsted Medical Center in Rochester. “I mean that car seat kept her very protected and she is now making a remarkable recovery.”
