    Dr. Jeff Druck grew up in Houston but moved to Colorado for residency in Emergency Medicine at Denver Health. As Associate Program Director, he co-founded the Denver Health Diversity Committee, pioneering recruiting efforts of diverse residents which have served as a road map for residencies in all specialties. Currently, he serves at the University of Colorado as Assistant Dean of Student Affairs and Co-Director of the Office of Professional Excellence, and current president of the Academy for Diversity and Inclusion for Emergency Medicine; however, his most important role is as a father to four children, where he sometimes does admirably and other times comes in under the bar.
