EMS Symposium 50th AnniversaryThe Emergency Care and Trauma Symposium celebrated its 50th anniversary in 2018. The symposium remains true to its mission established 50 years ago—to provide education for all levels of emergency and trauma providers, from the pre-hospital environment through inpatient care.

 

The 2018 symposium featured keynote speaker Dr. Christina Hernon. Dr. Hernon is an Emergency Medicine Physician and Medical Toxicologist. She was a physician at the 2013 Boston Marathon and shared her compelling story about rendering initial aid to victims in the 2013 bombing.
