MM: Emergency physicians must practice the art of medicine not permitting interference of duty to the patient regardless of human variations inclusive of religion, nationality, race/ethnicity, social standing, sexual orientation, veteran status, ability/disability, or any other diverse factor. I encourage experienced emergency physicians to take under their wings and mentor one or more budding health care providers, especially from underserved or disadvantaged backgrounds. Our communities and our nation will be better served in the long run, and hopefully health care disparities will further narrow.
