As is my habit, I live tweeted the 2017 Annual Meeting. You can see every tweet sent under the #NAEMSP17 twitter feed here.  Of note, this year I skipped a larger number of sessions than usual in order to work at the “Twitter Help” table.  It was great to see so many of the big names in EMS take the dive into social media.  I look forward to seeing them out in the Twitter-verse.

I also covered some of the sessions for EMS1.  Find those articles here.
