CURRENT

Programming is targeted at ages 21-40 but everyone is welcome to attend. UW-Green Bay has a Corporate Membership and encourages your participation.

UW-Green Bay employees and students pay the ‘member’ price (instead of the ‘nonmember’ price) when attending Current events. If you try to register online for a Current event, and the ‘nonmember’ price displays (instead of the ‘member’ price), please complete the online enrollment process at the following link. Even though UW-Green Bay is a corporate member, Current’s database detects price based on individual membership, so this step may be necessary for the ‘member’ pricing to display.

Event Overview
Dreams are Never Free
Dr. Tina Sauerhammer will tell you “dreams are never free,” something her parents, Randy and Oki taught her at a young age. Then, what is the cost of making your dreams come true? At 34 years old, Dr. Sauerhammer has used hard work and dedication to reach her dreams, and achieve history-making success on a local and national front. From entering college at the age of 14, to wearing the Miss Wisconsin crown, to becoming Northeast Wisconsin’s first fellowship-trained pediatric plastic surgeon, Dr. Sauerhammer’s path has not been without hardship and tragic loss. She will take you on her journey of achieving her dreams despite life’s obstacles, and inspire you to do the same.
About the Speaker
Dr. Tina Sauerhammer
Pediatric Plastic Surgeon
Prevea HealthDr. Tina Sauerhammer, a Green Bay native, made local headlines in 1999 after becoming the youngest person ever to graduate from University of Wisconsin-Green Bay at age 18, then from UW-Madison Medical School in 2003 at age 22. That same year, she was crowned Miss Wisconsin and announced second-runner-up in the Miss America competition, where she promoted the importance of organ and tissue donation – a cause close to her heart after losing her father to kidney failure.Dr. Sauerhammer discovered another passion – caring for children in need of plastic and reconstructive surgeries, such as cleft lip and palate repair – during her surgery residency at the University of Wisconsin. She went on to complete a fellowship in Pediatric & Craniofacial Plastic Surgery at Children’s National Medical Center in Washington, D.C., where she later served as the hospital’s co-director of burn service and clinical director of Global Health. One of Dr. Sauerhammer’s most notable medical achievements came in 2011, when she participated in the first full face transplant ever to be performed in the United States. She also spent time in some of the world’s poorest countries to provide children with much-needed medical care.

Today, after nearly 15 years away from her hometown, and paving a path of success across the globe along the way, Dr. Sauerhammer is back in Green Bay with a passion to serve the community she says helped to make her who she is today. In September 2014, Dr. Sauerhammer joined Prevea Health to become Northeast Wisconsin’s first and only fellowship-trained pediatric plastic surgeon. She cares for children in need of a variety of reconstructive procedures for congenital deformities such as cleft lip and palate, and procedures for those who have suffered traumatic injuries.
