Dear AAEM Members,

It is with a heavy heart I write to inform you that AAEM President, Kevin Rodgers, MD FAAEM, was tragically and violently taken away from us today in Indianapolis, IN.

Throughout the course of his career, Dr. Rodgers demonstrated incredible leadership and dedication to AAEM, serving faithfully on the board of directors for 12 years as an at-large member, secretary-treasurer, vice president and most recently, as president. He has been an integral part of AAEM’s educational programs and was a tireless champion for the organization.

He touched thousands of emergency medicine residents throughout his career in his roles as an educator and program director.

Kevin was also a veteran of the U.S. Army, where he served with distinction for over 10 years before honorably separating at the rank of Major.

It is still too early for us to process this tragedy. Our thoughts are with his family and his colleagues at Indiana University during this most difficult time. May he rest in peace with eternal love.

David A. Farcy, MD FAAEM FACEP FCCM
President-Elect, AAEM
