From NewsNation: ‘Shark doctor’ conducts research to better treat bite patients

Aug 7, 2023

From NewsNation: Dr. Robert Borrego is medical director of trauma here at #StMarysMedicalCenter. His research into shark bites continues to receive national attention. He and his team were able to figure out which antibiotics work based on the specific type of shark after someone is bit by one.

He was featured by the cable news outlet this morning, who joined him on his boat a few miles off the Atlantic coast, to show them how he swabbed their mouth, a key element to the research.
