Hello EMRA family!

I am re-running for my current position of Director of Technology because I believe in EMRA’s mission and endless pursuit to enhance emergency medicine training. Over the past two years I worked tirelessly to help us all be the best clinicians we can be through “EMRA’s Mobile App Initiative,” my previous campaign platform.

During my term we developed a state-of-the-art content management system allowing EMRA to create what will become some of the best clinical apps on iTunes and Google Play (both). We released the new ABX App at ACEP ’18, and at ACEP ’19 we will unveil MobilEM, a powerful platform bringing all our resources into the app space over time, with continuous, free, automatic updates. As exciting as this is, our work is not done!

If re-elected, I will expand EMRA’s apps; we have many member-initiated proposals in the pipeline. Our success in this area helps us grow in many other ways as well, helping to fund new resources and opportunities for all of us. I will use my years of board experience to excel as Director of Technology so I can serve the interests of our members and our patients in every circumstance.
