His successful use of hyperbaric oxygen for carbon monoxide poisoning in experimental animals led to its application in humans

    Chapter Town Hall Meetings

    - ALL CHAPTER TOWN HALL MEETING ARE SCHEDULED FOR EASTERN STANDARD TIME ZONE (ET) - 


    During the most recent UHMS BOD meeting the board voted unanimously to hold our Chapter meetings quarterly and in a Virtual Chapter Town Hall format. 

    Chapter Town Hall meetings will be hosted virtually every quarter. During each quarter one regional Chapter will provide 3.5 hours of lecture topics/faculty suggestions. All four regional U.S. Chapters will then have representation; this will allow the learners to stay up to date with their CME/CEU credit requirements and connect with a wider audience. A virtual platform also allows more flexibility and availability for many faculty members, including our international experts. A 3.5-hour timeframe is easier to manage for many learners who have other responsibilities and are unable to take time away from their clinics or unable to fund hotel, airfare, and food expenses. It is also the recommended time for virtual learning to maintain optimal concentration.This will allow us to keep registration fees low while continuing to provide a high-value educational experience.

    Background: The UHMS Chapters have been a vital component within our Mission to offer regional educational content to our learners and stay connected with colleagues and industry leaders. While they continue to play a vital role within the Society, it is necessary to review the Chapter platform, as costs continue to rise significantly with in-person meetings. We now have the technology and platform to produce high-quality meetings virtually. This allows us to accommodate the educational needs of our Chapter learners and keep reasonable registration fees to fulfill the needs of our learners in a cost-effective manner.
