Dr Sheryl Heron receives National Teaching Award.

Dr Sheryl Heron: 2012 recipient of the American College of Emergency Physicians (ACEP) National Teaching Award. This is one of the most coveted awards in academic emergency medicine -- awarded annually to only 10 emergency physicians among scores of nominees -- recognizing mid career faculty members who are devoted teachers, role models, mentors and 'curriculum creators'. It's also important to put this in context, recognizing that ACEP has more than 26,000 members, so this award represents and honors those performing at the highest level of achievement. Our heartiest congratulations for a job so well done, and for representing Emory so well!
