ACEP in Need of Doc Blog Content
POSTED: March 21st, 2017
POSTED IN: EPIC - The Official Newsletter of MOCEP, March/April 2017,
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, email@example.com, prior to writing content to verify there is still content needed for that topic.
