MER members and guests rocked and rolled in Cleveland during the 2014 regional conference! The conference was kicked off with a live feed surgery! Thank you to Dr. Remzi and his team for providing us with the opportunity and for guiding us through the loop ileostomy formation surgery. Education was provided on such topics as diabetic foot care, the pelvic floor, and IBS pharmacology. Members heard about how to navigate and advance their practice. Many members sported their favorite rock band t-shirts while dancing the night away during Friday evening's rockin event. Be sure to like us on Facebook (MER WOCN) and explore this website for pictures capturing all the conference activities!
