Paramedic Emergency Medicine Benefits
CONCORD – The Kiwanis Club of Concord continues its decades-long support of the Paramedic Emergency Medicine (PEM) program at NHTI – Concord’s Community College with help in funding a new pediatric simulation mannequin.
PEM Department Chair, Keith Wilding, says, “While no one likes to think about a child being sick or injured, it is one of the many possible situations for which paramedic students must train. The addition of an “Advanced MegaCode Kid” will allow NHTI to improve the realism of simulated patient interactions which improves the quality of care our graduates can bring to their communities.”
Ken Georgevits, a 40-year member of the Concord Kiwanis, states “The Concord Kiwanis Club has been serving the Greater Concord Community since 1924. Our focus is on supporting the youth of Concord. We have been in partnership with NHTI to provide funding to support programs that specifically target pediatric trauma training for over 30 years This is local training to future providers. The Kiwanis Club is a non-partisan, non-denominational group of men and women building better communities one child at a time.”
NHTI is grateful for the ceaseless support provided by the Kiwanis Club of Concord to the PEM program. This latest simulation equipment provides advanced life support skills training for our students at the highest level of competency while using the most current technology.
The purchase of this equipment was also made possible through the support of Merrimack County Savings Bank and PEM alumni donors.
