Social EM & Population Health Committee

Who We Are

Emergency physicians are the front line providers for under-served patients and witness the downstream effects of social determinants of health every day. Social EM is an emerging niche that explores the social forces that impact our patients and how these forces intersect with systems of emergency care. Are you interested in health disparities and inequities? Are you passionate about public health, community partnerships and improving care for vulnerable patients? If you care about advocacy, education and research in service of our patients and communities please join the Social EM and Population Health Committee!
