For better or worse, what happens in Washington doesn’t stay in Washington—it impacts the delivery of EMS at every level. Every year, leading experts on what’s going on in Congress, at the White House and inside federal agencies come to Pinnacle to share their insight. This year, we have invited Dia Gainor, MPA, Executive Director of the National Association of State EMS Officials; Gam Wijetunge, MPM, Director of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s Office of EMS; and Lisa Hawke, a partner at Holland & Knight, one of Washington’s leading law firms, where she focuses on healthcare policy. They’ll discuss recent and forthcoming legislation that EMS leaders need to be aware of, lessons learned from COVID-19, and what the 2022 elections mean for EMS.
