The Levitt Center for Social Emergency Medicine is an independent nonprofit research and advocacy institute dedicated to transforming emergency medicine to better incorporate social context into daily practice. Our work in Social Emergency Medicine (SEM) explores how social, economic, and other factors affect the health of our patients and their communities. The Levitt Center provides resources and support for research and advocacy in SEM as well as population health initiatives that recognize sensible use of the emergency care system.


The Emergency Medicine Foundation (EMF) was founded in 1972 by visionary leaders of the American College of Emergency Physicians (ACEP). As a non-profit research entity, EMF invests its funds to achieve its mission of developing career emergency medicine researchers whose research improves patient care and provides the basis for effective health policy.


Founded in 1968, the American College of Emergency Physicians (ACEP) promotes the highest quality of emergency care and is the leading advocate for emergency physicians, their patients, and the public. ACEP represents more than 36,000 emergency physicians, residents and medical students.
