Our fourth annual EM Research Day took place on Wednesday, April 20th, in the new Smilow Center for Translational Research (Smilow Auditorium and lounge area - Perelman outpatient center complex).
EM Research Day is a terrific opportunity for the entire department to come together and learn about each other’s scholarly activity. Last year, we had 34 poster presenters, 5 presenters who faced the EM “Shark Tank” panelists, and 7 oral presentations from a diverse group (nurses, residents, faculty, and fellows from PPMC, PAH, CHOP, and HUP - the whole spectrum of who we are as a department), and feedback about the event was outstanding.
This year, our guest of honor and keynote speaker was Lynne Richardson, MD FACEP, an accomplished EM physician, scholar and mentor at Mount Sinai Hospital in New York City. Oral presentations, and the poster session, followed the 12:30 keynote address. This event is open to the public.
Keynote Speaker: Lynne D. Richardson, MD, FACEP
The Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai
“Building An Academic Career in Emergency Medicine”
Lynne D. Richardson, MD, FACEP, is Professor of Emergency Medicine, Professor of Population Health Science & Policy, and System Vice Chair for the Department of Emergency Medicine at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai in New York City. A native New Yorker, she holds Bachelor’s degrees from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in Life Sciences and Management; and an MD degree from the Albert Einstein College of Medicine. Dr. Richardson is a practicing emergency physician, an accomplished clinical researcher, an exemplary research mentor and a nationally recognized expert in health services research. Her areas of interest are access and barriers to care and healthcare disparities. She is also an expert on emergency research conducted with an exception from informed consent and community engagement. Her work has been funded by the NIH, AHRQ and, most recently, through a Health Care Innovation Award from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid to implement GEDI WISE, a new model of emergency care for older adults. Dr. Richardson is a member of the New York City Board of Health, the first emergency physician ever to serve in that Board's more than one hundred and fifty year history. She is a member of the Advisory Committee to the Director (ACD) of the Centers for Disease Control and is the current Chair of the ACD Health Disparities Subcommittee.
After Dr. Richardson's lecture, we enjoyed short oral research presentations by members of our department. Then lunch was served while we enjoyed both research posters and "lightning" oral poster presentations on the electronic big screen (new this year). Come for our guest speaker, enjoy lunch, and learn about all of the terrific scholarship that is taking place in our Department. We also had some "guest" appearances from colleagues outside the department with scientific work relevant to our field.
