Our first meeting regarding women leadership in emergency medicine was a great success!  

Doctors and medical students from all over the state joined our board meeting and then participated in a session where we talked about "Networking tips". We then had a general networking event followed by our annual Director Dinner -the speaker was incredible and thought provoking - Dr. Brenner spoke about "Building a New Model of Care For the Most Complex Patients."   

We have a few exciting upcoming events - Our next board meeting on March 2 at 9:30 am in Hamilton Township, NJ.  We will have a similar post-meeting session regarding "Negotiating Tips", starting around 12:30 pm.    

At this meeting, we will also select one attending AND one resident physician to receive FREE registration to ACEP's annual Leadership and Advocacy Conference being held March 12-15 in Washington, DC.
