On Thursday, February 16, Calvin College will host a lecture by Dr. Robert “Butch” Hubers, medical director for Contact Center Services and chief of transport medicine for Spectrum Health Medical Group.
The lecture, titled “When Every Second Counts: Air Medical Services” is part of the Your Health Lecture Series, a collaborative community event sponsored by Calvin College, Spectrum Health and Michigan State University College of Human Medicine.
Hubers currently practices as an emergency medicine physician with Emergency Care Specialists at Blodgett Hospital in Grand Rapids and as a flight physician for Aero Med. He’ll cover a lot of ground in his lecture, touching on topics like trauma aviation safety, aviation technology and altitude physiology, heart attacks, strokes and Boyles law. He’ll also share real stories from the ER. His lecture is designed to appeal to students, teachers, medical staff and the general public.
Hubers’ lecture, which is free and open to the public, begins at 7 p.m. in the Calvin College Chapel.
