" Emergency Medical Services help our community members during some of their toughest times. Through my work in prehospital care and education, I recognize and value the importance of training others to be able to take action in emergencies. I am passionate about developing healthier and safer communities through EMS education. I want to empower the youth to develop leadership, communication, and basic medical skills to save lives and act in moments of crisis. I am excited to become a Millennium Fellow to better understand issues with community safety and wellbeing and advance UN Sustainable Development Goals with my project. I hope to learn valuable creativity and leadership skills, developing as a community leader and changemaker along the way. "

Millennium Fellowship Project: Emergency Medical Education 34

Millennium Fellow Neha Gondra created the Emergency Medical Education 34 (EME 34) program with the UC Davis Fire Department. The program is designed to educate high school students in response to medical emergencies as trained citizens at school, at home, or in their local community and contribute to saving a life while learning life-long safety skills. According to the Red Cross, 59% of child and adolescent deaths that resulted from injury could have been prevented had first aid interventions been taken immediately prior to the arrival of Emergency Medical Services. By increasing the number of trained individuals in the community, this percentage of casualties could be reduced.

Neha wants to help students apply first-aid, leadership, teamwork, and communication skills while gaining experience with active decision-making and problem-solving. She aims to build more resilient and safer communities through community health education and awareness. Through the presence of trained individuals, the program would help decrease severe outcomes of medical emergencies and lead to healthier and better outcomes for communities in the long-run, empowering youth and community members.
