As an Emergency Medicine physician, Dr. PrattĀ hopes to accomplish three things. The first is to become adequately trained in Emergency Medicine, with the skills to treat urgent and emergent medical complaints. The second goal is to advocate for systemic changes that would improve health literacy and access to sustainable healthcare, thereby addressing persistent healthcare disparities that often lead patients to seek treatment for non-life threatening illnesses in Emergency Departments. Lastly he hopes to create youth sports programs that would not only provide access to acute care for injuries, but would also help instill greater resilience and preparation for success, as sports once did for him.
