Erik Bryz-Gornia ’13 (below, left) is finishing up his Master’s of Public Health degree with a concentration in Global Environmental Health while assisting with an inaugural Paramedic Education Program in the western region of the Dominican Republic during the summer of 2015.

During a medical mission trip in August of 2014 a need was recognized to develop the skills and competencies required for effective pre-hospital emergency care. Ambulance workers were either untrained or under-trained with minimal supplies on hand. To mitigate these health disparities, Erik, along with other healthcare professionals associated with the Christian non-profit Solid Rock International planned and implemented a 7-week program to drastically improve pre-hospital training which will better the health of those in the San Juan region.
