Message From The President

 I am very grateful and honored to have been entrusted to serve as President   for the NJ Chapter of ACEP. My goal this year is to develop ways for our   Chapter to be a catalyst and facilitator for what I shall refer to as ‘Resourceful   Networking’.

 Our Chapter has a multitude of very talented and creative physicians,   residents and students. I want NJ ACEP to provide a mechanism for them to   share their ideas and novel successes in the practice of emergency medicine   so that we can all experience the benefits.

 I assure you that our Board and I will assertively advocate on your behalf as   issues arise that may impact our practice of emergency medicine in New  Jersey. We need everyone to participate and support our initiatives. I invite and encourage all of you to utilize your ACEP membership to its fullest and get involved locally or nationally. Together, we can all work together to effect positive changes for people needing emergency medical care in New Jersey.
