Loss of a wonderful friend and colleague

Through an accidental and egregious error on my part, this post was never published. I am so very sorry for only now finding my mistake. The original date for posting was January 18th.

It is with a very great sadness that I type this. On December 11th, 2018 we lost our co instructor and very dear friend Marcia Schultz. She had been fighting cancer but sadly it was too much. I for one am going to miss her terribly. Marcia loved teaching to EMS folks and she can never be replaced or forgotten. We will always rememebr her warm smile and he dedication to her students. Marcia spent her energy an love on caring for others, both human and 4 legged as well. Go out today and do some random act of kindness to remember her and carry on her legacy. Rest in Peace my friend.

DMST course to be held at UB

We have been invited to speak at the University of Bridgeport to their  current nursing class. We are thankful for the opportunity to share this lecture topic with the students. Domestic Minor Sex Trafficking is a bigger problem than we think in every state and although it's a tough topic to present it is a very worthwhile one.
