For our first episode, we are so excited to feature Dr. Kathleen Clem. Among her many stellar accomplishments, she served as the founding president of AWAEM in 2009. She’s a true pioneer of emergency medicine— she was the first female division chief in the department of surgery and the first chair of the academic department of emergency medicine at Duke before serving as chair at Loma Linda University, her alma mater. She talks about how advocating for women does not mean hating men, and how the academy first began as a tiny interest group, and how it’s evolved into a nearly-400 member strong organization.
