The Leadership & Advocacy Conference (LAC) is coming up May 5–8, 2019, in Washington, D.C., and it’s a great opportunity for emergency physicians to advocate for the profession, engage with members of Congress, and connect with other emergency medicine leaders. The first sessions offer leadership training and a deeper dive into policy, and then attendees will take that knowledge to Capitol Hill to meet face-to-face with legislators about key issues affecting emergency medicine. The conference will close with the Solutions Forum, covering emergency medicine–led solutions related to telemedicine and mental health.
New for 2019: ACEP is offering emergency medicine–specific Medication Assisted Treatment Waiver Training and the ED Acute Pain Management Bootcamp at the tail end of LAC. Register.
