Our department was a hosting institution for the 8th Mediterranean Emergency Medicine Congress, held in Rome in early September. Eight of our faculty members traveled to Italy to participate in this international event. Terry Mulligan, DO, MPH, served on the Executive Committee of the conference. Amal Mattu, MD, was a keynote speaker, presenting his lecture titled “Becoming the Leader Others Follow.” Also traveling to Italy as invited speakers were Brian Browne, MD, Ken Butler, DO, Semhar Tewelde, MD, Larry Weiss, MD, JD, George Willis, and Mike Winters, MD. Collectively, they led two pre-courses, presented more than 30 lectures, and moderated several panels. The conference drew more than 950 participants from 61 countries, with 105 speakers from around the world.
