Working my first shift since the EEM conference, and I just reviewed Mel’s Corporate, Personal, and Bedside reasons for “Why we do EM”! 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! Thanks Mel, and thanks to the entire EEM Staff. You guys are true Rock Stars!
