September 2018 EMS Update: New Members Appointed to NEMSAC Will Focus on Provider Wellness and Continue Previous Council’s Efforts
In July, US Secretary of Transportation Elaine Chao appointed 24 leaders from EMS, healthcare and other sectors to serve on the National EMS Advisory Council (NEMSAC). Chosen from more than 100 nominations, new and returning members will collaborate to provide advice and recommendations regarding EMS to NHTSA and to the members of the Federal Interagency Committee on EMS.
NEMSAC members serve as a critical connection between people whose work impacts and is impacted by EMS in local communities and federal officials. NEMSAC serves as a voice in Washington for EMS clinicians, patients and other stakeholders.
