President's Message

Leadership and Advocacy. They go together like ham and eggs, Penn and Teller, Page and Plant. So how appropriate that the most recent Ohio ACEP event was our two-day Emergency Medicine Leadership Forum, the perfect intersection of Leadership and Advocacy.

The event began with an exclusive screening of the fantastic EMRA documentary delving into the history of Emergency Medicine. The appropriately-titled “24|7|365” was very well-received by the many people in attendance. The highlight for many of us was the presence of two of the “stars” of the documentary, Dr. Bruce Janiak (the 1st Emergency Medicine resident in the country) and Dr. Pam Bensen (the first woman elected to the Board of Directors of ACEP).
