One of our club members, David Afienko was granted the ACOEP Student of the Year Award at the 2019 National ACOEP Scientific Assembly in Austin, Texas. This award is given to one student each year who is nominated due to their extensive involvement in Emergency Medicine related research projects, including being lead author, as well as going above and beyond in involvement with the ACOEP organization.
