October 15, 2021
The air is crisp, the leaves are turning, and the days are shorter. Yes it’s fall, but it’s also conference season! The Exo team is ready to leave our hibernation and safely travel to Boston for this year’s ACEP conference. We’re most excited about engaging in long overdue in-person socially distanced conversations and learning (say that 3X fast). What courses are on top of our list, you ask? Well, you came to the right place.
