“Our life revolves around Chernobyl. Where were you when it happened, how far from the reactor did you live? What did you see? Who died? Who left? Where did they go? I remember in the first months the night life started buzzing again – “you only live once,” “if we’re going to die, let’s do it to music.” The soldiers came and the officers came. But now Chernobyl is with us every day. No matter what happens, everyone says: Chernobyl. pg 116
It’s been another amazing year here at ALiEM. The beginning of a new year is a time to reflect about where we have been and where we are hoping to go! In the past year, we have continued to see a rapid growth of innovations and projects. Under the leadership of Dr. Michelle Lin, the ALiEM team has grown to become an international organization with over 50 volunteers all helping to not only write for the blog (such as the new Healthy in EM series), but also to create new projects like our Chief Resident incubator (affectionately known as the “CRincubator”), 60-Second Soap Box, and ALiEMU!
Thanks to the leadership and design expertise of our ALiEM Digital Fellowship team, we have assembled an annual report to update everyone on our projects this year. We are proud to present our 2015 Annual Report, which highlights many projects and collaborations, as well as some behind the scenes insights.
