What is a Trauma Center?
What is a Trauma Center?

A trauma center is a hospital that provides comprehensive medical care to patients who suffer traumatic illnesses such as motor vehicle crashes, acts of violence, falls and the like. The disease of trauma requires many specialty services to provide the best care in order to give the patient the highest outcomes and survivability rates. The program will detail special services, who should go to a trauma center, the social and ethical needs of a trauma center, the cost of trauma, what a mechanism of injury is, and ways to prevent injury.

Four Way Speech Contest
Four Way Speech Contest

From the earliest days of the organization, Rotarians were concerned with promoting high ethical standards in their professional lives. One of the world's most widely printed and quoted statements of business ethics is The 4-Way Test, which was created in 1932 by Rotarian Herbert J. Taylor (who later served as RI president) when he was asked to take charge of a company that was facing bankruptcy. This 24-word test for employees to follow in their business and professional lives became the guide for sales, production, advertising, and all relations with dealers and customers, and the survival of the company is credited to this simple philosophy.

Adopted by Rotary in 1943, The 4-Way Test has been translated into more than a hundred languages and published in thousands of ways. It asks the following four questions:

"Of the things we think, say or do:

  1. Is it the TRUTH?
  2. Is it FAIR to all concerned?
  3. Will it build GOODWILL and BETTER FRIENDSHIPS?
  4. Will it be BENEFICIAL to all concerned?"

 

The specific goals of the contest are:

  1. To acquaint a large number of youth with Rotary and the Four-Way Test.
  2. To demonstrate and enhance Rotary's commitment to youth.
  3. To heighten awareness of Rotary among youth, parents, schools, and community.
  4. To recognize, encourage, and reward hard work and accomplishment among youth.
