The Wyoming Department of Health (WDH) is inviting interested residents to attend a stakeholder meeting August 14 to introduce a healthcare approach known as “community paramedicine and mobile integrated healthcare.”

The meeting will be held from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. at Cheyenne’s Little America Hotel and Resort in conjunction with the 44th Annual Wyoming Trauma Conference.

According to the Wyoming Department of Health meeting speakers will present the national and international history of community paramedicine and mobile integrated healthcare programs and discuss how to integrate public and private partnerships for improved health outcomes.

Andy Gienapp, WDH Office of Emergency Medical Services manager, said  “in rural areas, access to some essential healthcare services can be tough.”  He added that “potentially using emergency medical services volunteers and professionals in non-traditional roles may offer some help.”
