It is the goal of this conference to provide high quality, affordable education for rural providers of all levels. This year’s conference is aimed to educate providers from Paramedics, nurses, PAs/ NPs, MD/ DO, but also First Responders, Fire Department, and other EMS responders. The schedule is still being finalized, but we already have partnerships with University of Colorado, Airlife of Denver, HealthOne of Denver, Northern Colorado Medical Center, Western States Burn Center, and others to bring to you exciting, informational, and up-to-date medical information to enable you to provide better care for the patients you serve.

We will also be offering 4 hour blocks of the skid control defensive driving (this is available to all licensed drivers, under the age of 18 must have parental permission) for the defensive driving you can also sign up using EZ registration link below, this is great for all drivers especially teenagers.

You can register for the conference, networking dinner, T-shirts, and skid control driving all on the online registration form.  A updated syllabus/ schedule and more information can be found by visiting the MMH Webpage at , go to the Education Tab, then click on the NECO Emergency Trauma Conference.
