Chair’s Corner

The Geriatric EM Section is active with budding momentum from the section members involved in daily geriatric emergency patient care. The section’s goals are simple; to be a bring together our likeminded members who are passionate about geriatric emergency medicine. This is accomplished through quarterly newsletters like this one, and monthly conference calls held the third Monday of each month at 11:00 CST/ 12:00 EST / 9:00 PST. These calls are open to GEMS members and designed to be a discussion hub for the latest geriatric topics and activities. Please plan to join us!

This Newsletter include feature pieces on Dr. Evan Chong and International Minimum Standards for Care of Older People Statement from IFEM, and the Geriatric ED accreditation tracking board. Enjoy!
