GAINESVILLE - The Northeast Georgia Medical Center's 6th Annual Northeast Georgia Regional STEMI Summit set a record for attendance.<br />
Hospital officials say nearly 600 healthcare professionals -- including paramedics and EMTs, physicians, surgeons, nurses, students and others -- from more than 19 counties across the state attended the one-day meeting on Friday.<br />
They heard from nationally-recognized experts in cardiac resuscitation and acute stroke management who provided up-to-date information about the treatment of stroke, severe heart attacks and cardiac arrest.<br />
​The meeting also provided a chance for participants to discuss the state of the Northeast Georgia Regional STEMI System
A pair of zoning requests made by the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Atlanta easily made their way through “first reading” at Tuesday evening’s Gainesville City Council meeting, passing unanimously and without any public comment in opposition.
