EMS on ICE Hockey Fest

For the past 12 years, Allina Health Emergency Medical Services has hosted the Pulse Check Conference.  This year the Leadership Summit will be held on Thursday, September 21st and the Clinical Forum will be held on Friday, September 22nd at Mystic Lake Hotel Casino in Prior Lake, Minnesota.  This annual EMS Conference brings public safety agencies and health care systems together to discuss the future of health care.  For more information go to emspulse.org or contact Lori Witte at [email redacted].

 This year a very unique event will be added in conjunction with the conference.  The inaugural “EMS on ICE” hockey fest will be held on Thursday, September 21, 2017 from 5:00 pm to 7:00 pm at the Dakotah! Ice Center adjacent to Mystic Lake Casino Hotel.  All proceeds from this event will benefit the Strub Caulkins Center for Suicide Research: http://www.suicideresearch.org 

The teams will consist of players from local EMS agencies who will play for a great cause.  If you are interested in being part of a team or want more information contact Jeff Lanenberg or Chuck Kaufman (contact information below).  The teams are on a first come, first serve basis so sign up soon!
