Family Medicine Professors Big Role in New SIM Mobile Unit

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.

    This project is so amazing. Drop by this afternoon to see the visiting truck. It is outside of Sorrell.

    Press conference is going on now, with Hank Bounds, Jeff Gold, Jean Stothert, Lt. Gov Mike Foley, Shelley Stingley, and Heidi from the Helmsley Foundation, Jen Wolbelsen the rural EMT, and Paul. What a supportive group of people for this project!

    Hank Bounds is calling this an important statewide resource.

    What a great asset for the State of Nebraska. Faculty and staff leading the project are housed in Family Medicine.
    They are joined by faculty from anesthesia and emergency medicine.

    Thanks, Kerin, Mackenzie, Ellen, and Nicole for your help.
