One of the greatest things about the FOAM movement is how much it feels like a family. There’s a real willingness to share and contribute to one another which is really refreshing, an ethos captured in Tim Leeuwenberg’s SMACC reflections blog post. And we know that:
A man who doesn’t spend time with his family can never be a real man.
Don Corleone to Johnny Fontane, the Godfather
In the spirit of our FOAM family, we are delighted to welcome the godfather of FOAM himself: Joe Lex.
Joe is returning to Manchester on 3rd July for another FOAM event so if you missed his fantastic talk last year (or if you were there but you’re ready for some more Lex-y goodness) this is your chance to hang out with this incredible man as he shares his “Lessons Learned During 47 Years on the Front Lines”.
Joe’s talks are full of godfatherly wisdom and inspiration; just the tonic for a worn out ED clinician. (And as a bonus you can meet some of the St Emlyn’s team, if that sort of thing floats your boat.)
The event will take place at the Stopford Building, part of the University of Manchester, from 19:00 on Thursday 3rd July 2014.
The talk is free to attend but you do need to register in advance: email us at [email protected] or fill in the form at the bottom of this post to reserve your place. The event is co-organised with the help of the Emergency Medicine section of the Manchester Medical Society.
After the talk Joe & some of the St Emlyn’s team are going for dinner and drinks in Rusholme and we’d love you to join us on Manchester’s infamous curry mile. Please indicate in your email whether you’ll be coming for dinner so we can ensure there’s enough space!
On behalf of the St Emlyn’s team, we look forward to seeing you there.
