Christine Ju, MD

- St. Joseph's University, Paterson, NJ


All about anaphylaxis. What is it, why does it happen, what causes it, how do we treat it?

I am a current fourth year and chief resident at St. Joseph's University Medical Center in Paterson, NJ. I was born and raised in Northern California and spent the majority of my early life in the food service industry helping to run a family restaurant. I attended the University of California, Davis for my undergraduate education before moving to the wonderful island of Grenada in the Caribbean to attend St. George's University for medical school. With a family owned restaurant and a chef for a father, I love everything about food, especially eating it. I enjoy traveling, cooking, music, hiking, scuba diving, and any nature documentary narrated by David Attenborough.

I'm excited to be learning about podcasts from phenomenal EM Educators around the country

Can't wait to go through Bad Presentation Recovery with Scott Weingart!

With such an amazing line up of rockstars and hot names in the world of EM and medical education, why wouldn't I be excited?! I'll be starstruck just being in the same room. Looking forward to hearing from the best of the best, getting tips and tricks on what to work on to use on future lectures/presentations 

Audio consumption is rapidly growing every year, and podcast listeners are projected to almost double to 112 million listeners by 2021. I am excited about applying what I learn at this conference to resident conference days, on-shift teaching, and educating a broader audience through digital content creation.
