Shehan Hettiaratchy: Bringing a knife to a gunfight... a surgeon’s view of war and conflict

Trinity alumnus Shehan Hettiaratchy has spent the last 30 years as a trauma reconstructive surgeon working in the UK and overseas with the military and aid organisations. He has dealt with casualties from the war in Afghanistan, the London terror attacks and most recently, the wounded in Ukraine. He will discuss the human experience of managing trauma casualties and how we can deal with the healthcare burden caused by war, the disease without a cure.
