This week EMS World features an EMS Squadcast interview with Dwight Polk, UMBC’s paramedic program director. Polk was interviewed by Tim Perkins, a UMBC alumnus who now works for the Virginia Office of EMS. The conversation focuses on Polk’s EMS World Expo presentation “HIV/AIDS: Why Don’t We Talk About It Anymore.” Key topics include how trimming educational budgets has harmed preventative measures targeting the disease and how instructors can better prepare EMS practitioners to provide quality care for patients with HIV/AIDS.
