31st Annual Meeting of the Pacific Chapter of the UHMS

31st Annual Meeting of the Pacific Chapter of the UHMS

Wyndham Hotel, Colorado Springs, Colorado

September 23 and 24th, 2005

The NDBHMT Exam has been cancelled. The NBDHMT is located in Harvey, Louisiana on the West Bank of the Mississippi River, adjacent to New Orleans. The area was devastated by Hurricane Katrina. The NBDHMT has a long relationship with both the UHMS and the UHMS-Pacific Chapter.
Full refunds will be given to those who had registered to take the exam. We will be providing CEU's for CHTs thru NBDHMT.

Dr. Neil Hampson will be presenting on "Storm-Related Carbon Monoxide Poisoning". This is one of Dr. Hampson's passions and he has been working on this topic for years. He had planned to give this talk long before the Katrina tragedy and hopefully the information he provides will save lives.

Our thoughts and prayers are with everyone in the Gulf area.
