CHEYENNE — The Wyoming Department of Health (WDH) is reminding emergency medical volunteers and professionals across the state to register for the 44th Annual Wyoming Trauma Conference planned for August 14-17 in Cheyenne.
“Each year our annual conference plays a key role in training and motivating those involved in Wyoming’s emergency response and trauma systems,” said Andy Gienapp, WDH Office of Emergency Medical Services manager. “This event usually draws hundreds of responders.”
The event begins on August 14 with a variety of full-day pre-conference workshops on topics such as treating burn patients, caring for children in emergencies, responding to radiological incidents, safety, vehicle operations and trauma system issues.
Gienapp said the main conference features expert speakers on the latest techniques for treating various injuries and effective emergency medical techniques. Sessions range from licensure and performance measure issues to active shooter response and treating rodeo injuries.
“This event is the focus of our ongoing efforts to help Wyoming’s responders be as ready as they can to help residents of their communities who face traumatic medical situations,” Gienapp said.
Conference sessions will be held at Cheyenne’s Little America Hotel and Resort.
