UND Awarded Grant for Mobile Health Education Simulator| 8/3/2012
"Our investment in the simulation program in North Dakota, we feel, will change lives," said Walter Panzirer, trustee of the Leona M. and Harry B. Helmsley Charitable Trust. "With this program, we hope it will encourage more people to stay in emergency medical service and and more people to go into EMS."
Under the program, four trucks with classrooms will be stationed in Grand Forks, Fargo, Bismarck and Minot. Each unit will have a three person crew from the state`s six major hospital systems (Altru Health System, Essentia Health, Sanford Health in Fargo and Bismarck, St. Alexius Medical Center and Trinity Health) teaching in each simulation unit.
