Public Announcement: Mourning the Loss of Tamara O’Neal, M.D.

Nov 21, 2018

The American Board of Emergency Medicine (ABEM) wishes to express our deepest sorrow to the family and friends of Tamara O’Neal, M.D., an emergency physician at Mercy Hospital in Chicago. As dedicated workers in the specialty of Emergency Medicine, we are unfortunately all too familiar with the daily tragedy of senseless violence. When a fellow emergency physician is killed, the depth of loss is more acute—it creates a deep void throughout our specialty. ABEM’s sympathies are extended to the families of Dr. O’Neal and the other victims. We mourn this loss along with the other public servants affected by their deaths.

Robert L. Muelleman, M.D.
