EB Medicine Joins Thousands of Volunteers
for EM Day of Service
Atlanta, GA, September 6, 2017 – EB Medicine is pleased to announce that on September 6, 2017 volunteers came together at Atlanta Community Food Bank to help sort and distribute food to the Atlanta community. This event is part of a larger global philanthropic effort, the EM Day of Service, a campaign driven by the emergency medicine (EM) specialty. The EM Day of Service provides an opportunity for emergency physicians, residents, nurses, physician assistants, paramedics, medical students and others to give back to the communities they serve.
As part of EM Day of Service, emergency care providers and supporting organizations from across the globe will identify a community need and take action. They will strengthen their community through efforts such as hosting food drives, helping with home repairs for the elderly or disabled, providing health screenings, cleaning up trash along highways or parks, preparing meals at a local shelter or visiting and interacting with patients at nearby nursing homes.
EB Medicine chose volunteering at Atlanta Community Food Bank (ACFB) for their EM Day of Service because ACFB is dedicated to building a healthier, stronger community that is free of hunger. “We are delighted to partner with emergency medicine colleagues globally to make a difference in our community,” says Stephanie Williford, CEO. Ms. Williford reports, “many communities have unmet needs, so seeing the EM Day of Service in action allows us to serve in many places.” The EM Day of Service is defined by the motto: Need. Volunteer. Community. Teamwork. Celebrate. Emergency Medicine.
