Members of the North York General Hospital (NYGH) Emergency Services Program recently organized Emergency Medicine Update Europe, an international conference in Emergency Medicine held this October in St.-Remy-de-Provence, France. Eighty-five participants from Canada, the United States and Australia participated in the 4th biannual event.
