Awards or Featured Spotlights :

  • Dr. Pare was just selected for the 2016 HFSA/EMF Acute Heart Failure Young Investigator Award.  This is an $80,000 research award to determine if ultrasound measures (corrected flow time and lung ultrasound) can predict 30-day returns for patients with congestive heart failure. More information can be found here: https://www.emfoundation.org/grantees/
  • Dr. Pare also won SonoGames® for Boston Medical Center for the first two years it was held (2012, 2013) and was the Faculty Captain for Yale University when Yale won SonoGames® in 2015.

What I do for fun:


  • Food.  Sushi. I try to grow produce, but a recent move back to Boston in July left for a very short growing with some very small eggplants!


Why I joined AEUS: AEUS is a fantastic opportunity to be involved in multiple important aspects of emergency ultrasound development and education.  AEUS now offers grants for residents and faculty, it allows for you to network and find out what other people are working on, it has allowed me to stay active with SonoGames (super fun and everyone should check it out in May this spring at SAEM!), and it also allows you to be aware of policies and changes in how we as emergency physicians choose to use and develop point of care ultrasound in our clinical practice!
