Dr. Weiss and Dr. Lu Honored by AAEM

Two of our faculty members recently received prestigious awards from the American Academy of Emergency Medicine (AAEM). Larry Weiss, MD, JD, was named a Master of the AAEM, an award that has been presented only 7 times during the organization’s history. This top-tier honor recognizes senior AAEM fellows who have made extraordinary contributions to the association and to the specialty through service, published works, education, and leadership. Mimi Lu, MD, MS, received AAEM’s Young Educator Award, which honors a physician for outstanding contributions to AAEM through its educational programs. The awards were presented during AAEM’s 2015 Scientific Assembly, held in Austin in early March. Congratulations to Dr. Weiss and Dr. Lu!
