The American College of Emergency Physicians (ACEP) named Mark S. Rosenberg, DO, MBA, FACEP as the new president-elect during ACEP19 in Denver Colorado. ACEP's Council votes on the president-elect, who will serve a one-year term and will assume the presidency at the organization's annual meeting in 2020.
"Emergency physicians are at the center of some of the biggest challenges in health care today, with respect to both clinical practice and public policy," said Dr. Rosenberg. "I look forward to working with emergency physicians and health stakeholders nationwide to address the opioid epidemic and improve our approach to mental health care in this country. As sentinels of America's health care safety net, emergency physicians have a duty to protect access to emergency care for the millions of people we treat each year."
