It’s Almost Time to Start Teaching!

Well, here we are, it’s October and in just ten days, I will be back in Massachusetts standing in front of what will hopefully be a room full of people giving a new lecture for the first time: The Solution is Pollution.  It goes without saying that I am quite excited.  I am hoping that this will be the first step for me, and maybe someday, AJ Heightman or Scott Cravens and their teams will see fit to bring me in as a speaker at EMS Today or EMS World Expo. For a long, long time, I was completely terrified of public speaking.  Now, I love it.  I do not know when the change happened, but it did, and hopefully I’ll be able to capitalize on it.

The conference is scheduled for two days, October 18th and 19th, and it is being held in Springfield, Massachusetts at the Mass Mutual Center right in the heart of downtown Springfield.  There are hotels just a block away from the convention center, and plenty of places to eat and drink just a few blocks away.

Over the last four or five years, the Massachusetts EMS Conference has grown exponentially, and this year is no exception.  They are expanding their exhibit hall, and continue to bring in high quality speakers to lecture on the topics that their audience wants to hear about.  This year, I am lucky enough to be in the company of people like Dave Aber, who had to put up with me as my Field Training Officer for my first six weeks at my new job, Jim Politis, and someone I think very highly of: Dr. Ed Racht, the national medical director for American Medical Response.   Unfortunately, due to my travel schedule I will most likely miss most of the lectures from Friday, but I will be there all day on Saturday, as that is the day that I am presenting.

Registration for the conference is not closed yet.  You still have a chance to get in there and not only get some credits but have the opportunity to take control of your field and be a better provider for you and your patients.  Just click the picture below, and you will be taken to the Massachusetts EMS Conference registration page.

I hope to see everyone there!
