Congratulations to Dr. Nadine Himelfarb for receiving the AWAEM “Catalyst” Award!  The purpose of this award is to honor female faculty who have made outstanding contributions through clinical work, teaching, mentorship, role modeling, or administration with great local or regional impact. The spirit of this award is designed to recognize those who contribute significantly to their department or the field of EM but who may have escaped national recognition.

She is the founder and chair of Brown EMpowHER, the women’s faculty development group of Brown Emergency Medicine, and serves as Director of Emergency Medicine Observation Services. An active member of the Rhode Island chapter of ACEP, she serves as vice-president and councilor and represents RI ACEP on the Rhode Island Medical Society Council. 

Congratulations Dr. Himelfarb!
