Who We Are

In collaboration with the board of directors and other committees, the Government and National Affairs Committee directs and coordinates AAEM's advocacy efforts in Washington. They assist AAEM's "watch dog" activities with regard to governmental activities and public health issues that may affect AAEM members and monitor the activity of other national medical organizations as it pertains to the practice of emergency medicine.
