SCCM Presidential Address: A New Era of Critical Care

“I am so grateful for the honor to serve each and every one of you, whether you are a long-time member of our Society, a new member in training, or have not yet joined. I am a physician who specializes in—wait for it—critical care medicine, as well as pulmonology. I grew up in Kansas, the heartland of our country, and I now work at Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia. I am the first physician in my family, and perhaps like many of you, I was drawn to critical care medicine because of a personal experience with critical illness.”
