Things just don’t feel the same. I would like to say that it’s the excitement of stepping up to my role as the first female President of AAEM, and indeed, that is exciting. But this is not the kind of party a Latinx family from the South Bronx would be having when their mama becomes President. No, the social distancing, the cancellation of Scientific Assembly, not being able to thank you in person for the confidence you have placed in me, not having physical contact with my family, not having my house full of medical students and residents, not having big, loud, happy dinner parties when I’m not travelling, not visiting residency programs to talk about AAEM—that’s what feels so different. Without a doubt, these are unprecedented times. With uncertainty, we seek that which is familiar, and we depend on that which is reliable. The Academy is what it always has been: the Champion of the Emergency Physician, the uncompromising proponent of workplace fairness, a consistent voice for the emergency patient, reliably putting patient before profit.
