Margaret Samuels-Kalow, MD, MPhil, MSHP

Vice-President of Communications Massachusetts General Hospital


I completed residency training at the Harvard Affiliated Emergency Medicine Residency (BWH/MGH) in 2012, followed by a pediatric emergency medicine fellowship and K12 research fellowship at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (2016). My research focuses on developing interventions to reduce disparities in emergency care, and using the emergency department visit to improve health equity, and has been supported by a wide variety of funders including SAEM and NIH (NICHD, NIDCR). Locally, I was part of the founding teams for both our departmental women in EM group, and the Harvard Medical School-wide women’s emergency medicine faculty consortium. Within SAEM, I have been an active member of AWAEM, the Research Committee, and the Social Emergency Medicine and Population Health Interest Group. I was the co-chair of the AWAEM Research Committee from 2019-2022, during which time we developed the research consultation program for AWAEM members. I would love this opportunity to work to help support the broader AWAEM mission. As VP of Communications, I would work to help support the existing AWAEM committees, strengthen our connections within SAEM, and make sure that the important work of the Academy and our members is disseminated effectively.
