Remind me of the time a partner cut through the patient’s goose down coat. Don’t drop the rainbow loom box and don’t cut through the goose down coat.

EMSEduCast Reunion at NAEMSE

by on September 28, 2014

in Uncategorized

Last week at the 2014 National Association of EMS Educators Symposium Bill Toon, Rob Theriault, and myself met face-to-face for the first time. Even though we had co-hosted more than 100 episodes of the EMSEduCast we had never gathered in the same place. Turns out that I enjoy their company as much (actually more) in person as I did on Skype.

We all enjoyed the chance to meet many EMSEduCast guests at NAEMSE.

All episodes of the award-winning EMSEduCast are still available for download and you are welcome to connect with other EMS Educators at Facebook.com/EMSEduCast.
