One of the super fun parts of my job as Event Coordinator is generating Instagram and Facebook posts. Looking at the pictures from last year never gets old. I’m currently searching for a photographer and videographer for this year’s event. Yours truly took most of the photos for Emerge 2018, but I have WAY to much to do this year. Do you know someone with an artistic eye who would like to document Emerge 2019? Ideally, I would like it to be a high school student. The whole idea of Emerge is to motivate and inspire the next generation of doctors, but I’d like to motivate an emerging photographer, as well. Let me know!
Also, dark blue crew neck t-shirts are currently dominating our t-shirt choice survey.
I had the incredible opportunity to present about Emerge / 2018 to a huge group of students at Escondido Charter High School yesterday. Go, White Tigers! I PROFUSELY apologize for wearing my cheetah shirt. I will spend the next year scouring local stores for a White Tiger one!
I was hosted by the incredible, Mrs. Jennifer Hegemann, ECHS’s Bio 1 & Bio 2 Teacher. One student even signed up during my presentation. He gets an obligatory photo on the site:
👇🏼 Wow. This is a terrible photo of me.
After the AWKWARD SILENCE which ALWAYS occurs after opening the floor for discussion, I got some GREAT questions. See below…
Student A: Where did you get your shirt? Me: The Mall
Student B: At what STORE in The Mall. Me: OH! I thought you would never ask. White House, Black Market. [Reminder, you have to earn FOREHEAD LINES before you can shop there. NO, I am NOT getting money for typing that.].
ONWARD AND UPWARD…
I REALLY enjoyed meeting POLITE, INQUISITIVE, and MOTIVATED students at ECHS. I have the BEST job. Ya’ll are SUPER lucky to have Mrs. Hegemann as a teacher, too! She’s also allowed to say she has the BEST job.
In other news, there are some gorgeous pieces of art on campus, should you have some time to spare whilst visiting Escondido. Take a look…
TTFN! Looking forward to seeing MANY of you June 29th. I hope to be back next year for a visit. In my white tiger shirt.
Last Friday, Mr. Jeff Lohman, science teacher extraordinaire, hosted us for an informational meeting. It just so happens, there are humans hanging from the ceiling in his classroom. Thanks to all the students who skipped their lunch to join us! We hope to see ya’ll in June.
A great big thank you to Mrs. Schildhouse and the students at La Costa Canyon High School in Carlsbad for hosting us today. We hope you enjoyed getting to meet Dr. Eads and Wendy Shinar. We hope to see you again in June at UCSD!

Our team is so excited to launch our website and begin contacting high schools all over San Diego County. We are a mere 10 months away from the first emERge! If you can Be a Doc in a Ten Years, then you can certainly create an awesome conference in ten months, right?
