About 450 college students who serve as volunteer emergency medical technicians and paramedics on their college campuses will participate in lifesaving skills competitions and other activities at their annual convention in Baltimore this weekend.

The timed skills competition from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. on Friday will be the best bet for video and still photography. Approximately 15 undergraduates from Johns Hopkins will be competing and participating as simulated victims. Other events throughout the weekend include educational seminars on pediatric emergency medicine, gunshot wounds and current issues facing collegiate emergency medical services. Presenters will include the University of Maryland Shock Trauma Center, the Johns Hopkins University and Johns Hopkins Medical Institutions and emergency crews from the Baltimore area. A preliminary schedule of events is posted online at http://www.ncemsf.org/about/conf2004/schedule.ems.

The National Collegiate Emergency Medical Services Foundation and the Johns Hopkins Emergency Response Organization (HERO) are hosting the conference. Visit HERO online at heru.jhu.edu/hero/. If you wish to cover this event, call Amy Cowles at 443-287-9960. The on-site contact for the event is George Koenig, president NCEMSF, at 610-246-0126.
