FemInEM Website Launches

FemInEM, our open access for women practicing Emergency Medicine is live. We are very proud of what we developed and hope it, along with the established AWAEM, AAWEP and GWIMS networks, will continue to unite the community of women practicing Emergency Medicine. Each of you has in some part inspired the group of women behind this to continue to better the playing field, academic environment and clinical experience for women after us. Thank you .
