Acadia National Park is a scenic treasure encompassing several islands off the coast of Maine. Its topography was molded by glaciers and features numerous lakes, fjords, and the tallest mountain on the east coast. Automobile-free carriage roads throughout the park afford blissful running and bicycling opportunities, and the coastline is perfect for kayaking. The conference is structured around two mornings of park activity, including the option to participate in either a half marathon or 5K on the morning of September 21. We have partnered with Bar Harbor-based operators to provide a structured bicycle tour and kayaking tour and will coordinate an activity program with each participant (and their accompanying friends/family) individually.

Acadia EM Forum is unique as a national conference for its focus on natural beauty in a remote location, small size (limited to 16 participants), and discussion-based format. Instead of lectures, a weekend-long conversation on emergency airway, sedation and pain management topics. Instead of monologue, dialogue. No slides, no microphones.
