Scientific Assembly Still Going Strong
This month, emergency physicians will join their colleagues in Boston for education and networking at ACEP15. In 1977, ACEP members were traveling to the opposite side of the country for the Scientific Assembly—but some of the hot topics for discussion haven’t changed.
- JACEP cover from 38 years ago.
- San Francisco was featured as the fifth ACEP Scientific Assembly location and has continued to be a favorite venue ever since.
- Telemedicine in the ’70s? Amazing how some topics seem to resurface over time. Looking at the title and the era, would you have expected a soup can and a string? Page 440 shows the state-of-the-art telemedicine equipment being used in 1977.
