Friday - July 26 - 9:15 am - 10:15 am
Presenters: Jamie Pospisil
Although the impact of nutrition on our health is well known, diet tends to fall behind issues like exercise, fatigue and exposure to carcinogens when we discuss the health risks related to performance and safety in fire and EMS. In this session, we’ll have an open and honest discussion about how what we eat might be harming not just ourselves, but also our patients and the public. So grab a healthy breakfast and join us to learn more about this critical issue.
This session will be facilitated by Jamie Pospisil, a captain with the City of Lincoln Fire & Rescue Department in Lincoln, Nebraska. Pospisil is the co-author of a recent white paper, “Does Diet Impact Fire/EMS Performance and Outcomes?” that was written by graduates of the Fall 2018 Ambulance Service Manager program to fulfill a core requirement of the course.
