Family Medicine Professor and Assistant Dean for Clinical Skills, Paul Paulman, MD, served as the principal investigator in the partnership with The Leona M. and Harry B. Helmsley Charitable Trust to obtain a $5.5 million grant for the Simulation in Motion-Nebraska (SIM-NE) mobile simulations unit. Clinical Professor, Audrey Paulman, MD, MMM, also assisted with fundraising efforts.
The truck will provide training to emergency medical service responders in rural areas including Lincoln, Norfolk, Kearney, and Scottsbluff.
“We really hope this will make a difference for the health of the people in the state. We are very grateful to the Hemsley Foundation for helping make this possible,” Paulman said.
The unit will be available to tour while it is parked at the Sorrell Center on Tuesday, July 26 from 12:00 to 4:00 pm.
