Candidate Statement

I, Fred Earl Kency Jr., MD have been an active and contributing member of AAEM for over six years.  Since 2015 I was active in AAEM/RSA and AAEM. I have served in multiple roles such as on the Board for Young Physician's Section AAEM, At-Large Board Member Resident Student Association AAEM, Vice Chair education committee Resident Student Association AAEM, and a number of other capacities.

I lead the creation of the monthly social media publication "AAEM YPS Member Spotlight" that selects one member each month to showcase that member’s accomplishment to the entire Academy. The social media platform has been a great success and one of my most exciting accomplishments.

I am a Veteran of the United States Navy where I served four years of Honorable active duty.  That tour included the deployment and management of troops in Africa, Europe, and Guam.

Currently I work both in Academic and Community Emergency Medicine in Jackson, MS where I have the honor to continue to serve my passion for the community as well as my passion to educate the next set of Emergency Medicine Leaders in Health Care.
