Press Release Jul 18, 2017

The EMS Outreach and Education Program at The Children’s Hospital at OU Medical Center will be hosting their Second Annual Pediatric EMS Conference on September 15 and 16 2017. It will be the only such conference in the region and one of three pediatric specific conferences nationwide this year. In alignment with their mission, they wish to provide exceptional pediatric continuing education taught by experts at very low cost to their community EMS partners. They must rely on corporate sponsorships to keep the cost to their dedicated and valued EMS providers. Your early commitment to sponsor and have booth space will help ensure that we can provide the conference at a lower cost to their community EMS partners. Our long term goal is to provide this conference at no cost to their community EMS partners, and you can help us get there by showing your support. 

While the conference is designed to provide exceptional pediatric continuing education, its other equally important goal is to show gratitude to the men and women of EMS. The Children’s Hospital at OUMC recognizes the remarkable contributions of EMS in saving children’s lives every day. It is our desire to make our colleagues in EMS feel valued and respected. Becoming a sponsor of this conference will demonstrate your organization’s appreciation and support of EMS providers. 

Last year we were graced with Chris Cebellero and Kelly Grayson, This year our featured speakers this year include Governor Frank KeatingDr. Peter Antevy and Rommie Duckworth. We trust that you will find the sponsorship opportunities highlighted in this package of value to your organization. Please feel free to contact us directly should you have additional questions or different sponsorship ideas. We look forward to your strong support of the second Annual Pediatric EMS Conference at The Children’s Hospital at OUMC.
