To Be or Not To Be – THAT Is The Question
Many people have asked what led to the decision to keep the 2021 NABS Conference a LIVE meeting as opposed to a virtual one. The answer turned out to be relatively simple. We are all healthcare professionals. We know how to be responsible and conduct ourselves during a pandemic. Even though COVID-19 is still currently a threat to the world, the NABS Executive Board is betting that this pandemic will be under control by the end of March 2021. NABS and the Big Sky Resort are both committed to having a safe conference by following health & safety standards put in place by the CDC, NIH and state/local governments. Rest assured, you can attend NABS worry-free! …And don’t forget to bring your entire family. Kids are always welcome at NABS!


Is It Time To Switch Masks?
That’s a big YES! Why? Because the only fun mask to wear is your ski mask. This is especially true when fresh powdery snow washes over you while downhill skiing or riding through beautiful mountain terrain on a snowmobile. Or, perhaps you’re snow-shoeing through the woods, ice skating at the local outdoor rink or maybe feeling like a kid again and riding an innertube down one of the big hills nearby. These are just some of the fun things to do with your family and friends while attending the 2021 NABS Conference. Do yourself a favor, give yourself something to look forward to and come to NABS at Big Sky Resort in Montana!


2020 NABS Annual Conference: The Calm Before The Storm
Those who attended the 38th Annual NABS Conference have a least one good memory for 2020. Held February 15-20 in Sun Valley, Idaho, NABS attendees were some of the last participants of any medical conference as the world began shutting down. Over 65 attendees and 16 vendors enjoyed a variety of highly informative burn-related presentations, along with great skiing conditions that included many memorable runs. Non-skiing participants enjoyed other outings such as snowmobiling, snowshoeing and tubing. Attendees were also treated to a free concert by LC Roots featuring NABS’ own Preston Demeritt! Pictures and video to be posted soon!
