Dr. Stephen Kaminski

Dr. Stephen Kaminski, director of trauma services and the Surgical Intensive Care Unit at Cottage Hospital, has joined the Board of Directors at Jodi House Brain Injury Support Center.

Dr. Kaminski received his M.D. from Hahnemann University in Philadelphia, and subsequently completed a seven-year general surgery residency at Stanford University Hospital.

He has delivered multiple lectures and conference presentations on topics related to the care of trauma patients, and was named Surgery Residency Teacher of the Year for 2011 and Physician of the Year for 2012 for Cottage Hospital.

For the second year, Dr. Kaminski will be operating a concussion clinic for student athletes with goals of increasing understanding and reporting of concussion, and providing appropriate care for student athletes who have suffered such injuries.

The concussion clinic, a collaboration of Jodi House, Cottage Hospital and the Santa Barbara High School District, will be held at Jodi House this fall.

 — Eryn Eckert is executive director of Jodi House.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
