Working my first shift since the EEM conference… The physician that I relieved asked me what I will do differently after attending the conference. My answer was that in addition to several pearls of practice that I will use, I will fall in love with my specialty all over again!

– Duane Harrison

Thanks for the great learning and inspiration. Looking forward to another great conference next year.

– Tandi Wilkinson

Thank you Essentials for all that you do. It is hard to explain to your friends what an amazing, entertaining AND educational conference that you put on. I leave in awe once again and look forward to my next shift with a renewed vigor!
