ACEP Withdraws Keynote Invite to Deepak Chopra

The American College of Emergency Situation Physicians (ACEP) revealed on Tuesday that it has actually gotten rid of alternative medicine supporter and New Age author Deepak Chopra, MD, as a keynote speaker from its annual conference in October after a swift backlash from members.

ACEP provided this declaration the other day on Twitter: “We heard you.

Deepak Chopra’s presentation has actually been gotten rid of from the #ACEP20 lineup.”


ACEP first announced the news about Chopra on September 4: “We are excited to announce Deepak Chopra, MD, FACP, will be an unique keynote speaker at ACEP20!

As responses came in on social media last Friday, ACEP tweeted, “We hear you.

Dr Deepak Chopra

An ACEP representative informed Medscape Medical News, “ACEP is devoted to a diversity of voices and messages in our programs. Deepak Chopra was arranged to speak particularly to the topic of wellness at one of four basic sessions.”

The spokesperson explained the “strong feelings” expressed by many members who were not in favor of Chopra’s look. In order to support the “unity of the emergency medication neighborhood,” ACEP decided to remove Chopra from the lineup, she stated.

Dan Buckland, MD, PhD, an ACEP member from North Carolina, told Medscape Medical News he believes the messaging from ACEP has actually been mixed.

Members initially got word that Anthony Fauci, MD, director of the National Institute of Allergic Reaction and Infectious Diseases, will be a keynote speaker, Buckland stated. They received the announcement about Chopra’s keynote address.

” It might promote the message that the college considers them comparable,” he stated.

Buckland said he presumed ACEP was attempting to draw individuals to a virtual conference with prominent speakers, but in Chopra’s case, the relocation was misdirected.

Chopra’s newest book, Overall Meditation: Practices in Living the Awakened Life, is set to be published later on this month.

” ACEP seemed to be saying, ‘We consider him a specialist in wellness.’ When Chopra specifies wellness, it is far beyond the method emergency situation medication defines health,” Buckland said.

Interaction with the membership about the selection of keynote speakers “has been somewhat lacking,” he included.

” Just Absurd”

.

“[Chopra] has preached Ayurdeva (a natural medicine system) and ‘quantum recovery’ as treatments for everything from aging, to cancer, to AIDS,” stated Rupinder Singh Sahsi, MD, an ACEP member in Cambridge, Ontario, Canada. “He claims that development is not a genetic process but one directed by consciousness.

” It’s simply absurd for someone who flies so arrogantly in the face of contemporary, evidence-based, clinical progress to end up as a keynote speaker at an annual scientific meeting of a genuine medical company,” he said.

Sahsi tweeted to ACEP today after learning of the turnaround, “Kudos for rapidly admitting the mistake, and immediately making it right.”

But a single person recommended that the damage has actually currently been finished with the invite.

Cathy Richards tweeted that although inviting Chopra to speak would have offered him the opportunity to use ACEP as a marketing tool, canceling now offers him the opportunity to state,” ‘[Doctors] are so afraid of my teachings they cancelled me’. So ACEP has actually created a no-good-outcomes circumstance on their own.”

Attempts to reach Chopra were not successful.

Marcia Frellick is an independent reporter based in Chicago.
