Created by ACEP, the Emergency Medicine Wellness Week™ will remind all emergency physicians and their colleagues to take the time to self-renew while, at the same time, work the long and at times very difficult hours we do.Make it about action rather than just ideas. Become more healthy, less burned out, and more resilient this year.
