Your goal as an EMRA leader: To broaden interest and activity in the fields of prehospital and disaster medicine

Why serve as an EMRA leader?
As an organization, EMRA allows its members to come together and share information, build camaraderie, and shape the future of emergency medicine. Being able to be a part of that mission, and working to improve the lives of EM residents nationwide and, ultimately, those of our patients, is an honor.

Favorite life hack for night shifts:Have an "Epic Movie Soundtrack" playlist on blast on the drive in. After that, even doing simple activities, like charting, will feel pretty epic!

Last non-textbook I read: "The Martian" by Andy Weir
