MedicCast Episode 489

Good day and welcome to this week’s episode of the MedicCast. I’m your host, Jamie Davis the Podmedic and I’d like to welcome you to this week’s show. We have part 2 of a special crossover episode for you this week from the Disaster Podcast at DisasterPodcast.com.

A year ago I interviewed Jason Friesen, the founder of Trek Medics International, a non-profit organization committed to transforming emergency medical care in third-world countries. We had him on a few weeks back on the Disaster Podcast to talk about what he’s been doing over these last few years since I last talked with him. We’ll have part two of the interview started in last week’s episode. That is coming up later on in this special extended episode.

All of these segments this week were recorded thanks to the continuing support and sponsorship of the Physio-Control corporation. Thank them for supporting your EMS podcasting community.

EMS Tip of the Week: Trek Medics International Update

trek-logo-fullres-250TrekMedics.org is a special organization that seeks to improve emergency medical care in third world countries around the world. Featured recently on CNN, many people heard about them here first on the MedicCast when I interviewed founder Jason Friesen a few years ago.

Now the programs supported by the organization are even bigger and better because of recent support from folks like Google and other large donors who have awarded grants to Trek Medics so they can continue to grow and develop their work. Check out this update from the Disaster Podcast with me, my cohosts Sam Bradley and Joe Holley and special guest Jason Friesen. Remember, for those of you watching this on the video version. The Disaster Podcast is an audio only show so you’ll just be seeing their logo during this segment. Do not adjust your TV sets.
