FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – July 1, 2017 – Norcross, GA – EB Medicine announced today that Ilene Claudius, MD, has been named Editor-in-Chief of Pediatric Emergency Medicine Practice. Dr. Claudius is Associate Professor of Clinical Emergency Medicine and former Chief of Pediatric Emergency Medicine at the Keck School of Medicine of the University of Southern California. Pediatric Emergency Medicine Practice is one of only a very few peer-reviewed, MEDLINE-indexed journals focused on the specialty.
Dr. Claudius has served on the journal’s editorial board since 2013. She wrote and narrated a Pediatric Emergency Medicine Practice Audio Series volume on 4 critical topics: envenomations, septic shock, children with special needs, and inhaled foreign bodies. Last year, Dr. Claudius advocated for us to develop a special report to educate emergency clinicians about new guidelines for identifying and managing low-risk infants brought to the emergency room after a brief resolved unexplained event,” says Verity. “EB Medicine acted on her recommendation and is proud to have helped to get the word out regarding this practice-changing intervention.”
Dr. Claudius succeeds Adam Vella, MD, FAAP, and Vincent Wang, MD, MHA, who served as Pediatric Emergency Medicine Practice’s Editor-in-Chief and Associate Editor-in-Chief, respectively. “Drs. Vella and Wang ushered in many enhancements to Pediatric Emergency Medicine Practice during their tenure, including assembling a world-class editorial board and ensuring the level of research rigor and editorial quality required for inclusion in the National Library of Medicine’s PubMed database, a pivotal achievement,” says Suzanne Verity, publisher.
“As a woman-owned company, we are also excited to shine the spotlight on Dr. Claudius, adding to her many achievements as a leader in emergency medicine,” says Stephanie Williford, EB Medicine’s CEO. Although females comprise 50% of medical school classes, they make up only 25% of EM-trained physicians, according to the American College of Emergency Physicians.
