This past week marks the 2nd Annual FIX (FemInEM Idea Exchange) 2018 conference. From all feedback, the conference was a huge success. Having attended this conference for the 2nd year in a row, I can attest to the fact that the conference is hugely inspirational, motivating and in many ways, practice changing. For those of you who have not had the chance to attend - plan to check it out one last time in NYC next year!
Here are some thoughts from those who attended from SIUH:
The FIX conference was an incredibly unique educational experience that I highly recommend. Powerful speakers were brought in from around the world to share their stories and experiences to help empower emergency medicine physicians. This conference showed me the strength that comes from an incredible community of physicians joining together to support one another. - Emily Bokser MD, PGYIII
It was an incredible conference. Diverse speaker perspectives, excellent and inspiring topics. I felt like it could have been curated specifically for the physician I am now, in this exact moment of my life and career, and yet I know many others felt the same way. Can’t wait for next year.” - Amanda Smith MD, Attending Physician
