Apart from taking in the amazing atmosphere of Brazil in the middle of the World Cup, Lee, Mark and Scott Cameron managed to find two incredible venues for our social functions for DevelopingEM 2014.
Scott is an emergency physician from Whangarei in New Zealand. Scott has a major Brazilian connection spending his formative high school years in Sao Paulo.
He’s been a crucial part of our organisational team for DevelopingEM 2014. During our week in Salvador in June Scott was critical to securing two amazing venues for the DevelopingEM 2014 Social Functions.
Our welcome reception on Monday 8th of September will be held in the gorgeous Pestano Convento do Carmo. This 16th century carmelite convent is a beautiful venue in the heart of the Historic Centre of Salvador (The Pelourinho) which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
With stunning architecture combined with period furniture and works of art we’re sure you will be blown away by the beauty of the venue.
Full registration ensures your attendance at this event.
Our conference dinner will be held at quite a different but very impressive venue, the Yacht Clube da Bahia. This suave waterfront restaurant, with its own mini Elevator Lacerda, is a truly beautiful venue. Overlooking the Bay of All Saints the restaurant gives you the feeling of being aboard a luxury liner. In contrast to the 16th century Convent the environment of the yacht club follows a contemporary style and the view of the Bay is the most generous possible.
Once again full registration ensures your attendance at our conference dinner.
DevelopingEM has, from the very first, had a focus on emergency medicine and critical care around the globe.
And from the beginning we’ve been helped by Natalie Thurtle.
Nat is an emergency medicine trainee currently based in Townsville in Far North Queensland. She has spent a considerable amount of time working with Medicins Sans Frontieres and at our 2012 Sydney Conference gave a fantastic presentation on her involvement in the management of the Zamfara lead poisoning disaster in Northern Nigeria.
In 2013 we expanded the Global Health presentations to an entire session. Speakers from around the globe outlined some of their experiences taking emergency medicine and criticalcare around the world. Nat once again gave a great presentation on her stay in Botswana.
This year Nat is the program lead for this expanded part of the academic schedule. In response to feedback we’ve brought the session to an earlier position in the program and the number of presentations has also increased. Nat has gathered an amazing group of physicians to discuss their experiences around the globe, from Papua New Guinea to Afghanistan and Guatemala to Fiji.
Join us in Salvador, Brazil to hear Nat’s team give some truly inspirational presentations.
