Dr. Jenkins’ Research

JLJ airshowMy personal research has centered on improving emergency public health through the study of emergency medical services, trauma and injury care, and disaster medicine.  Many of the following academic papers stem from my experiences caring for patients after disasters, in medical tents and in the field.
