Dr. Ron Walls’ is a stock shareholder in the Airway Management Education Center. The Airway Management Education Center runs various “The Difficult Airway Courses” which teach emergency airway management.

This poses no conflict of interest because IEDLI does not receive funding from the Airway Management Education Center and it is not classified as a leadership and management course.
