In the past four years, I've taken opportunities from EMRA to grow as a physician and a leader, aligning with EMRA's mission. I am running to be your EMRA President to make Emergency Medicine the best specialty possible by broadening our ability to serve patients.

Emergency physicians, by nature, are adaptable and resourceful. Recent years have transformed the landscape of our practice, placing the future of Emergency Medicine in our hands. I'm committed to helping us navigate this future, providing patients with care options that were previously out of reach.

As EMRA President, my mission would be to expand our scope of practice, enabling us to deliver top-notch patient care. This includes harnessing technological and procedural advances like telehealth and TEE and bolstering support for marginalized patients. These steps are crucial to maintaining the leadership role of board-certified EM physicians inemergency department care, attracting talented medical students to the specialty, and ensuring our beds are available for the next patient.

I have grown tremendously on my journey with EMRA, and I'm asking for your vote to represent you and our specialty. Together, we can continue to advance Emergency Medicine and deliver the best care possible to our patients.

Emergency Medicine is at a pivotal moment in time. We are expected to overcome multiple obstacles including hospital boarding, physician burnout, nursing shortages, and fears of employment scarcity. Our specialty’s current state has once again made us pioneers in an ever-changing landscape of uncertainty. We endeavor daily to provide the best patient care in a sustainable practice environment despite these unprecedented challenges.

We are strong advocates for our patients. Now more than ever, we need to find common ground. It is time that we step up as a community to advocate for each emergency physician’s future.

EMRA has a unique platform and vision directed toward our success. I aim to expand upon this vision and continue to build on EMRA’s prior accomplishments so that when we look back years from now, we will say that we moved mountains for the specialty just like we do for our patients every shift.

EMRA members, you are leading the way to outstanding patient care, exemplary medical education, and a bright future for EM. Using my experience in academic leadership and through partnership with the board, I will support you by being a voice for your needs. Together we will move forward.
