While serving as Captain of Mustang EMS, I used Engaged Learning support to develop a series of educational programs designed to make campus a safer place and help Mustang EMS members grow professionally. By designing and implementing Emergency Preparedness Booths at events such as PerunaPalooza, I sought to teach SMU students how to recognize and respond to common medical emergencies such as alcohol poisoning, heart attack, and stroke. Hosting Emergency Response Training Scenarios helped to generate a crew of knowledgeable Mustang EMS officers that will ensure the continuity of this event. Finally, by designing a protocol and hosting a campus-wide scavenger hunt for Mustang EMS members to check the campus AEDs, I worked with Risk Management and fellow students to ensure that campus is heart safe for any future cardiac arrests in the area.
