Health care is one of the primary vehicles for non-medical professionals to codify discriminatory practices aimed at LGBTQ communities. In light of the recent wave of discriminatory legislation aimed at LGBTQ communities — and particularly transgender people — we have worked with our partner Prodigy to make Dr. Timothy Hong's NAEMSP 2023 Annual Meeting session, “LGBTQ: Patients, Personnel, and Colleagues,” available for free with CME.
Educating patients on their risk factors, treatment options, and the timing of when they need to start treatment can help keep them out of the hospital. Use these handouts, posters, talking points, and social media messages to help educate your patients about:
- Who is at increased risk for severe illness from COVID
- The availability of COVID treatments
- The importance of getting treated early

Today we mourn EMS pioneer Dr. Leonard Cobb, who won the Ronald D. Stewart Award for his contributions to EMS. In the words of NAEMSP Immediate Past President Mike Levy, "So much of my EMS system’s opportunity to improve survival from out of hospital cardiac arrest is directly attributable to what he achieved and made available to the world through the use of the scientific method…The world owes Dr. Cobb a debt of gratitude."
