ACEP Will Hold Scientific Symposium in New Orleans

The American College of Emergency Physicians has announced that Scientific Assembly 2006 will be held in New Orleans, Louisiana, October 15-18, 2006.

New Orleans was scheduled as the host city for Scientific Assembly 2006 seven years ago. After Hurricanes Katrina and Rita, the ACEP Board and staff questioned whether the city would still be able to play host to more than 4,000 emergency medicine professionals and exhibitors. After a recent tour of the city and convention facilities by staff, the answer came back a resounding “Yes.”

"The emergency physicians providing care during Hurricane Katrina were among the very last people to leave the city,” said ACEP President Frederick C. Blum, MD. “It's appropriate that we are now one of the first to return.”
