Category Archives: Community Paramedicine Articles

We are pleased to have this great resource at Ramsey Social Justice Foundation. We will continue to add and update articles and share ideas with the Community EMS world. We hope this stimulates thought and contributes to the great changes that are upon us now. As EMS transitions from being the American safety net of crisis medicine to being part of the overall healthcare system with the Affordable Healthcare Act.
