On October 3, 2018, Dr. Mel Herbert gave the keynote address for the 50th anniversary of the American College of Emergency Physicians (ACEP). During this unforgettable talk, Mel shares his lifelong quest for meaning, which begins humbly in the remote Australian Outback and winds its way across the planet — through Chile, London, a village in Kenya, and far beyond. Through this remarkable tale, we are reminded of the superhero nature of Emergency Medicine that lives inside each of us. © 2018, American College of Emergency Physicians. Reused with permission.

Hey, a bunch of rural Aussie Medical Students watched this not far from your birthplace and they were Dead Impressed!
