David Newman was a keynote speaker at SMACC Chicago in 2015. He has since been convicted of serious sexual assault involving patients, and in response to that we have removed his lectures and content. Like all in the medical world we express complete support for his victims, as well as condemnation of these actions.
SMACC is a medical conference, brought about by individuals passionate about critical care and education of each other and the wider medical community. It is a not for profit enterprise, peopled by those who genuinely want to share their knowledge for the betterment of patient care.
We continue to thank those who support SMACC, and those who give of their time to come, speak, network, share their passion, and go home enthused to do the very best they can for their patients.
