In past years, NEA has maintained a medical clinic at the convention center, staffed by physicians and nurses along with medics to respond to life-threatening medical emergencies.  NEA will continue to provide basic first-aid and emergency care using the center’s first aid rooms. These services will be provided by and administered by medics.  Delegates who require treatment beyond basic first-aid, or the services of a doctor, will find Houston has many urgent care facilities, pharmacies, and hospitals nearby that provide excellent service on a 24hour/7 days a week basis. The local facilities are within a short taxi or Uber/Lyft ride away from the convention center.
