Orlando Medical Examiner’s Response to the Pulse Nightclub tragedy with Dr. Joshua D. Stephany, M.D. King County employees are also welcome to attend this presentation by Dr. Joshua Stephany, the Chief Medical Examiner in Orlando. Dr. Stephany will present the medical examiner response to the Pulse Nightclub tragedy. Dr. Stephany received his M.D. in New York and trained in Forensic Pathology in Miami. He is certified in Anatomic and Forensic Pathology by the American Board of Pathology. In his presentation for the King County Medical Examiner’s Office Forensic Pathology Conference, Dr. Stephany will walk attendees through the response and challenges that he and his staff faced through the days following the mass fatality incident.  Dr. Stephany hopes his analysis of the tragedy and response will help other cities and their medical examiner offices prepare for a similar occurrence.
