ACEP in Need of Doc Blog Content

ACEP in Need of Doc Blog Content

POSTED IN: Fall 2016,

ACEP is in need of “Doc Blog” content for their Emergency Care For You site. They are looking for articles on basic consumer-health information and have provided suggested topics below.

If you have other ideas, they are open to that as well. Articles should be 400-500 words in length, created in a Word document, and have some element of personal experience (mainly a patient or patients you treated once and how that experience can help others, etc.). Please reach out to Michael Baldyga,, prior to writing content to verify there is still content needed for that topic.

Suggested Topics:

What all parents (medically) need to know when sending kids off to live at college

Food poisoning

Lyme disease

A patient experience anaphylaxis

Injuries from being hit by a car

Sickle Cell – what is it?  What are the symptoms? Treatments?

Importance of giving blood

Injuries at the playground
