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, firstname.lastname@example.org, prior to writing content to verify there is still content needed for that topic.
