When Terror Strikes, America's Emergency Response is the Best
Our nation has dealt with some of its worst acts of terror in recent decades.

When these acts take place, they are horrific... oftentimes unbelievable.

It's becoming more and more evident that these days we all need to be aware and prepared for events like the Boston Marathon bombing.

Fortunately, our nation's emergency response system always seems to be ready and at its finest during tragic, dark times.

Our guest, Dr. Parveen Parmar, knows this all to well, as she was one of the doctors who tended to victims of the Boston event. Tap into Dr. Parmar's mind as she shares what goes through the mind of an emergency room physician, as well as the types of injuries these doctors deal with on a day-to-day basis.
