NJ-ACEP advocates for emergency physicians as we treat the community 24/7, every day. As frontline physicians we bear witness to the scared patient seeking answers about their chest pain, the worried parent relieved that their child’s overdose was not fatal, the Covid pandemic depleting healthcare resources, healthcare disparities worsening despite technological advances and lead physician supervised teams every day to meet these challenges.
Just as our patients have varying needs of medical treatment, New Jersey EM physicians vary based on practice location, years of experience and our personal backgrounds. That is why your voice matters. NJ-ACEP supports the practice and scope of emergency medicine by elevating the voice of the EM physician to lawmakers in Trenton. NJ-ACEP values your perspective as we advocate for polices that impact clinical care and our practice environments. Every voice has the opportunity to be heard and NJ-ACEP invites you to our membership/board meetings held quarterly to share your insights. If you are a member of NJ-ACEP you belong at our membership/board meetings. I look forward to seeing you and hearing the difference your voice will make.
