Ugo Ezenkwele: Medicine is a regulatory affair. And a lot of changes we want to see happen in emergency medicine cannot happen if we don't advocate for ourselves at where the political seed of power is. And so being a part of that process is incredibly important. No matter what your political affiliation is, we have to be able to speak to the people who actually craft the laws to make them understand what our patients need. And I think that it's important for our political legislators to understand the viewpoint of emergency practitioners who are at the forefront.
