WASHINGTON, June 12, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The following is a statement from Alex Rosenau, DO, FACEP, president of the American College of Emergency Physicians (ACEP).

"The American College of Emergency Physicians congratulates our esteemed colleague, Dr. Steve Stack, on his election to head the American Medical Association (AMA).  Dr. Stack will be the first emergency physician to lead the AMA and – at age 43 when he assumes office – its youngest president in 100 years.  His youth and energy, combined with a career already distinguished by leadership roles in both emergency medicine and the house of medicine as a whole, will aid him well as he helps all physicians and patients navigate this new era of health care.   In addition, Dr. Stack's experiences as an emergency physician and medical director of emergency departments in Kentucky and Tennessee will keep him connected to the 136 million patients who visit ERs every year.

I have known Steve personally since he was a medical resident elected to represent EMRA, the Emergency Medical Residents Association, on ACEP's Board of Directors. He is a born leader and we are very proud to see him recognized by the members of the nation's largest physician organization as their next president."

ACEP is the national medical specialty society representing emergency medicine. ACEP is committed to advancing emergency care through continuing education, research and public education. Headquartered in Dallas, Texas, ACEP has 53 chapters representing each state, as well as Puerto Rico and the District of Columbia. A Government Services Chapter represents emergency physicians employed by military branches and other government agencies.
