“Couple honors the role emergency physicians play in communities.
In front of a standing-room-only crowd, Dr. and Lady Glaucomflecken delivered an opening keynote session packed with laughs (so many laughs!) and important messages.
If you’re not familiar with the Glaucomfleckens, their actual names are Will and Kristin Flanary. Dr. Flanary is an ophthalmologist who specializes in satirizing the medical field with hilarious social media skits. (Here’s his iconic take on the EM residency interview.) Kristin is a superhero in her own right. She supported her husband through two bouts with testicular cancer in their 20s before helping to save him from sudden cardiac arrest in May 2020. She knows the trauma of being a “co-survivor” and uses her experience to advocate for compassion for patients and their families.”
