Eugene Richards, who handled the photography and interviews for the ACEP 50th anniversary book, Bring ’em All, put together a video in honor of the medical workers.
Richards said it was hard to see the headlines about frontline workers treating those dealing with COVID-19 without thinking of the people he profiled in the video, which he said reflects their shared experience.

Apologies for reposting, but the first time we shared this we accidentally omitted the names of the careworkers interviewed who deserve personal recognition. We'd like to share with you a film that I recently put together, with assistance from my son Sam and wife Janine. A kind of montage of photographs and interviews from two books—The Knife and Gun Club (1989) and Bring 'em All (2018)—the film speaks of the selflessness and courage of our doctors, nurses, paramedics, health aides, firefighters, medical technicians, and maintenance staff. It's a way of saying thank you, that you're in our hearts. #emergencymedicine, #firstresponder, #emt, #nurses, #er, #paramedics #healthcareworkers #healthcareheroes #ifanythingissacredADVERTISEMENT
