Congratulations to Gail D'Onofrio on Her Achievement!

In October, the National Academy of Medicine (NAM) announced the election of 90 regular members during its annual meeting. Election to the Academy is considered one of the highest honors in the fields of health and medicine and recognizes individuals who have demonstrated outstanding professional achievement and commitment to service. 

Among the 90 new members was Gail D’Onofrio, MD MS, an ACAAM board member who serves as the Albert E. Kent Professor of Emergency Medicine, Professor of Epidemiology (Chronic Diseases) and Professor of Medicine, Core Addiction at Yale University. She earned this prestigious honor “For foreseeing the exploding opioid misuse epidemic, identifying the opportunity during emergency care, and developing knowledge and policy to change the practice. Her studies on alcohol-related seizures, alcohol interventions, and emergency department-initiated buprenorphine are transformative. Her implementation science studies enhanced the migration of research into practice".
