Information. ICEP produces a bimonthly publication called the Illinois EPIC, which publishes state emergency medicine news, feature articles, research, chapter news and professional opportunity listings.

The best Canadian casino sites are those that cater to players from across the country. Some of these sites have a 24-hour chat room, while others offer live dealers and virtual sports. The best casino online in Canada offer a variety of games and payment methods. There are also many different types of games. You should make sure you choose one that is comfortable for your computer and mobile device. You should also find out about withdrawal fees and processing times before making a deposit.
Before you start playing at an online casino, you should familiarize yourself with what games they offer. You should also find out which software providers they use and how long it takes to pay out. It is also important to know if the games use random number generators or live dealers. If you’re not sure, you can always choose games that are RNG certified. This means that the games are safe and fair. Casinos that use RNG for their games are more trustworthy and will provide you with a better gaming experience.
Once you’ve determined what games you want to play, narrow down your search based on what they offer. You can even filter your search by software providers. In addition to the software, you should also check licensing jurisdictions. A casino licensed in the UK, Gibraltar or Kahnawake will have a solid reputation in the industry. However, if you play in Canada, you should stick to those casinos that offer these jurisdictions.
Education. ICEP is a leader in emergency medicine. As a member, you’ll receive discounted rates for all chapter-sponsored programs. ICEP also promotes research. With an active research committee, the chapter sponsors scientific paper and poster competitions.
Advocacy. ICEP represents your interests in state legislative arenas and with a wide range of health organizations. ICEP is represented in Springfield by the lobbying firm Illinois Strategies, which tracks all emergency medicine-related state legislation, assists ICEP in developing strategies for action, and advocates ICEPâ€™s positions with members of the Illinois General Assembly and Administration.
Practice Resources. You’ll receive information and support in areas that directly affect your success, including practice management, emergency medical services, reimbursement and physician recruitment.
Information on ACEP membership benefits is also available. See ACEP online at www.acep.org.
