The SUNY Cobleskill Paramedic Program‘s year is off and running. Coby was in Albany last week, collaborating with University at Albany for the Safe, Prepared, and Effective Learning Environments Inaugural Summit. The event featured expert presentations, panel discussions, and hands-on training exercises aimed at instilling crisis management strategies, responding to emergency situations, and on-the-spot decision making.

Huth co-presented the opening session of the summit on Monday and Tuesday, and Paramedic Program faculty provided “Stop the Bleed” training to 150 educators in attendance. The SUNY Cobleskill Paramedic Program partnered with the Albany Medical Center Trauma Program on the session, which is shown in this NBC News10 clip.

NYS Comptroller Thomas P. DiNapoli and Albany Mayor Kathy Sheehan were among those in attendance. Photography, courtesy of the SUNY Cobleskill Paramedic Program, is shown below. Follow the Program on Facebook for regular updates.
