Conference Description 

During the period of transport, critically ill neonates and children are at risk from disease, injury, and the transport itself. This risk can be minimized by good communication between the referring and receiving providers, careful evaluation and management, anticipation of complications, and a well-equipped and well-trained team. This conference provides a comprehensive approach to clinical issues related to neonatal and pediatric transport.

Target Audience

Advanced practice providers, nurses, paramedics, physicians, and respiratory therapists, who have training in the transport of neonatal and pediatric patients to tertiary care centers.

Keynote Speaker

William Gadd, ACMG, TKB, CAA level 2

Gadd is one of the top adventure sports athletes in the world, and has been at it for more than 30 years. He has safely led numerous large TV and research expeditions into highly dangerous—and rewarding- environments, climbed Niagara Falls, and taught his kids (and doctors and oil sands workers) to positively manage risk with the direct, entertaining and effective tools he learned through a lifetime of living on the edge. He speaks with personal humor and professional depth on effective and widely applicable tools to stay safe, build team resiliency, succeed in low-knowledge environments, and do what the experts said was, “Impossible!” He has presented more than 200 high-end presentations to groups from Exxon Mobil to incarcerated youth. Most recently he and his teams found new life forms in glacial caves for a Discovery TV show, and helped a planetary scientist sample the world’s oldest rocks in Canada’s Arctic.

Life Flight Annual Memorial Speakers

Heather Van Boerum, BS & Don H. Van Boerum, MD, FACS

Heather Van Boerum, born and raised in Salt Lake City, met her husband-to-be Don at the University of Utah where she majored in political science and he was preparing to enter medical school. On December 20th, 2021, Heather’s life was changed – and saved - by an uncanny sequence of events in the parking lot of a Costco across the street from where Don works as a trauma surgeon. The narrative of Heather’s story of triumph over adversity is woven by people who saved her: good Samaritans, her husband, their family, and herself.

Conference Outcomes
