60 Second Soapbox: Messman (Vertigo), Dolcourt (Charcoal), Stiell (C-spine Rules)

Sam Shaikh, DO |

60 second soapboxAfter a bit of a hiatus we are back with another round of 60-Second Soapbox! Each episode, one lucky individual gets exactly 1 minute to present their rant-of-choice to the world. Any topic is on the table – clinical, academic, economic, or whatever else may interest an EM-centric audience. We carefully remix your audio to add an extra splash of drama and excitement. Even more exciting, participants get to challenge 3 of their peers to stand on a soapbox of their own!
