AAEM Board of Directors 2017-2019
Scientific Assembly Speaker 2014-2019
Thank you for considering my nomination for reappointment to the AAEM Board of Directors, At-Large position. This will be my first reappointment, and I consider myself even more eligible for appointment after having been on the board for two years, learning much about the process and the opportunities to make a difference for members.
You may remember that my first candidacy was based on my desire to contribute to the education mission of AAEM. I am committed to promoting education in order to fulfill AAEM’s mission of providing affordable high quality continuing medical education in emergency medicine for its members. In that vein I have accomplished the following:
- Co-Chaired AAEM Scientific Assembly for 4 years, bringing a new budgeting format to the SA, bringing small group sessions and introducing up and coming new speakers to the program
- Helped develop AAEM’s Speaker Development Program to mentor new speakers
- Member of Scientific Assembly subcommittee for 6 years
- Member of Education Committee, ACCME Subcommittee, International Conference Committee, Women in Emergency Medicine Committee and Critical Care Section
- Represented AAEM through didactic sessions at Scientific Assembly, Mediterranean Emergency Medicine Conferences, as well as the Argentinian Emergency Medicine Congress and the IAEMC Congress in Costa Rica
- Promoted AAEM by giving talks to residency programs around the country
- Represented AAEM on a position letter to the ACGME regarding a Neurocritical Care Specialty Designation.
- Represented AAEM on a letter to ACGME/RRC with regard to changes in protected time for Emergency Medicine Core Faculty
- Chaired AAEM task force group to create a tool to help physicians working in low acuity, low volume or locums tenens positions to fulfill their MOC requirement for Practice Improvement (PI) activity.
- Chaired AAEM task force to address current issues facing Emergency Medicine around Advance Practice Providers (APPs) with regard to independent practice Represented AAEM on a multidisciplinary writing group to produce a review paper on Meniere's Disease
- Facilitated AAEM Board of Directors to approve becoming a partner organization to American Foundation for Firearm Injury Reduction in Medicine, which will enable us to support unbiased research on a topic that affects us all
In my view, my most significant accomplishments are in the area of promoting new and young speakers to present at Scientific Assembly by promoting them through the subcommittee and helping them to develop presentation skills through the Speaker Development Group. AAEM gives a lot to Emergency Medicine, and will have the most impact on new physicians entering practice with challenges such as due process and advocacy. Helping young physicians to develop their talents and get involved in the organization that best represents their interests will continue to make AAEM the leader in Emergency Medicine.
I appreciate your vote in helping me to continue to represent you on the Board of Directors.
