After the Storm: ACEP and AAEM

ACEP’s recovery website: After the Storm.

ACEP continues to be concerned about its members and their families who have been affected by Hurricane Katrina. Now that the storm is over and the recovery phase is beginning, we will provide you with information to help you regain your footing, find employment, relocate, and other resources as you recover from this disaster.

It’s pretty good, and there’s lots of good information and links in there for the EM docs and residents affected, or who want to help.

Contrast that with my preferred organization, AAEM, and this terrificly informative bit on their site:

Hurricane Katrina

 The
AAEM Board of Directors is meeting in Nice, France as part of the Third
Mediterranean Emergency Medicine Congress. A statement to the
membership about the AAEM planned relief efforts for hurricane Katrina
will be posted next week. Please stay tuned to our website for more
information.

So, ACEP’s site is filled with useful links, and AAEM wants everyone to know they’re thinking about it from France.  Not a good way to recruit.
