Attention! Please Read!

In light of the current COVID-19 situation, New Frontier Emergency Medicine has carefully considered the viability of presenting our in-person Symposium in December. Several factors were considered, such as the unknown availability of a vaccine, Idaho still having travel restrictions and being in Stage 4 for recovery. In addition, the inability of some of our Speakers to travel, social distancing requirements, and the safety of our participants. We have decided that we cannot, in good conscience, host a full Symposium in December as we had hoped. Our event is based on two main goals: One being that we provide the best possible educational experience, including hands-on interactive learning; the second is that we strive to ensure in-person networking during events such as the Boat Cruise and ‘Sipping With the Speakers’. Under the current conditions, we cannot meet either of those goals.

This decision was not easy for us to make. That said, the consequential choices we made were easy. First off, we are going to host a low-cost, one-day virtual event on Saturday, December 5th, that will focus on BLS content so that people can still get a few hours of CE’s before the end of the year. Secondly, we are going to move our plans for the 2020 Symposium to April 22-24, 2021. We’re reaching out to our committed Speakers and Instructors to secure their participation for 2021. We know we had an All-Star lineup, and are determined to have them join us for the new dates! We will also begin working with our great sponsors and exhibitors to make sure that they can attend as well. Finally, and most importantly, to all of the attendees that have already registered, we will make this right by you! If you want to transfer your current registration to 2021, we have automatically done so! If you need a refund, we understand and hope you consider attending in the future! For those who could not come in 2020, this is your chance, and you haven’t missed anything!

Again, it is heartbreaking to have to make this decision, but we have featured speakers with travel restrictions, several of the group events could not be hosted, and we could not maintain social distancing while offering the same educational and networking experience you have come to expect!

We appreciate your understanding, and we can’t wait to see you virtually December 5th and IN-PERSON next April!

All the Best,
Chris, Bill, and Scott
