President’s Message

As, I write my last president’s message, I have been reflecting on the last 27 months. Thank you for the amazing opportunity you gave me to earn your trust and support. My last president’s message will be a call to action. Our specialty is under attack from every possible angle… insurance companies, the threat of advanced practice provider (APP) independent practices, CMGs controlling our practice, congress “fixing” the balanced billing issue, etc. 

As a specialty, we need for all emergency physicians to get involved. I often hear: “Why should I join an AAEM committee?” “Why should I write and visit my congressional representative?” “Why should I encourage others to join AAEM and get involved?” “Why should I donate to the AAEM PAC?” “I am content, I am happy where I am!” This is the “laissez-faire” attitude that got us where we are

American College of Sports Medicine position stand. Quantity and quality of exercise for developing and maintaining cardiorespiratory, musculoskele… – PubMed

The purpose of this Position Stand is to provide guidance to professionals who counsel and prescribe individualized exercise to apparently healthy adults of all ages. These recommendations also may apply to adults with certain chronic diseases or disabilities, when appropriately evaluated and advised by a health professional. This document supersedes the 1998 American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM) Position Stand, “The Recommended Quantity and Quality of Exercise for Developing and Maintaining Cardiorespiratory and Muscular Fitness, and Flexibility in Healthy Adults.” The scientific evidence demonstrating the beneficial effects of exercise is indisputable, and the benefits of exercise far outweigh the risks in most adults. A program of regular exercise that includes cardiorespiratory, resistance, flexibility, and neuromotor exercise training beyond activities of daily living to improve and maintain physical fitness and health is essential for most adults. The ACSM recommends that most adults engage in moderate-intensity cardiorespiratory exercise training for ≥30 min·d
