Your goal as an EMRA leader: To integrate the principles of social emergency medicine into all emergency medicine training programs to better serve our most vulnerable patients

What is the best advice you've ever received?
Patients don't care about how much you know until they know how much you care.

What is something people don't know about you?
I took a year off after college to work as an urban farmer in a food desert - it ended up being my first lesson in social determinants of health.

Last non-textbook I read: "Unfollow: A Memoir of Loving and Leaving the Westboro Baptist Church" by Megan Phelps-Roper
