The fourth annual Emergency Medicine for Rural and Indigenous Communities Conference 2022 (EMRIC) took place in Flagstaff, Arizona, from Sept. 15 to Sept. 17. This year’s theme was “Innovation and Adaption.” It was the first time both planning committees from Boston and Arizona met, as the entirety of the conference planning was done virtually! It was a great weekend of many firsts, formal introductions and feel-good moments after a year of planning. It was an incredible time to see everyone come together and discuss emergency medicine within the context of rural and indigenous communities. From the procedural skills day to the two days of content, panels and discussions, it was truly a needed experience and one that none of us will ever forget!
