FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – June 22, 2017 – Ponte Vedra, FL – EB Medicine presented its second annual “Issue of the Year” awards today at the Clinical Decision Making in Emergency Medicine conference in Ponte Vedra, FL. The awards honor the outstanding work of leading practitioners who have written peer-reviewed journal articles published in Emergency Medicine Practice and Pediatric Emergency Medicine Practice.
“With this award, we recognize the efforts of authors who expand and enhance the body of evidence-based emergency medicine literature through their contributions to our journals,” says Andy Jagoda, MD, FACEP, Medical Director, Mount Sinai Hospital, New York, NY and EB Medicine’s Editor-in-Chief.
“Dr. Jagoda and the other judges considered criteria such as timeliness, relevance in practice, scope of review and coverage, clarity, and writing style to determine the winners,” said Stephanie Williford, CEO of EB Medicine. “Readers also weighed in. We ask them how our journal issues change the way they practice, and each month hundreds of emergency physicians tell us how our articles have impacted their clinical practice. The authors of the winning issues were very highly commended by their peers.”
