Leading Emergency Medicine Research to be Featured at ACEP19 Research Forum

DENVER, Colo.—Attendees of ACEP19 , the world’s largest emergency medicine conference, can view and discuss original research at this year’s Research Forum, a showcase of original work by hundreds of authors and an unrivaled networking opportunity for leading academic minds, all integrated within the conference.

The Research Forum is a chance to review the data that supports and informs emergency medicine from the ground floor. Leading academics will present findings that could ultimately strengthen best practices, clinical guidelines and policy for years to come.

Abstract presentations will be arranged by topic in Rooms 103, 105, 106, 108 and 113 at the Colorado Convention Center, October 27-29, 2019. Plenary sessions to summarize the day’s highlights and each of the three presentations in the popular “State-of-the-Art” series will be in Rooms 102-104.

Registered members of the media are welcome to attend. The Research Forum will also include educational opportunities for authors, writing workshops and more. Featured abstracts will be published as a supplement to the October 2019 edition of Annals of Emergency Medicine. Pre-registration is recommended but onsite registration will be available in the Media Relations Office, Room 204 of the Colorado Convention Center.
