Conference season is in full swing! Here’s a summary of summer events where you can hear our expert staff and advisors speak about the latest and greatest advancements in behavioral health.
EMS Week, (May 21 – 27) is an annual celebration and recognition of Emergency Medical Service (EMS) providers, Emergency Medical Technicians (EMTs) and Paramedics. EMS providers make a 24/7 commitment to saving the lives of people in their communities.

So, when songs by Soundgarden—led by singer and songwriter Chris Cornell—Nirvana, Pearl Jam, and Alice in Chains starting appearing on our airwaves right alongside songs by Brittany Spears and The Backstreet Boys, their message seemed clear: They came to save us.
