Taking Care of Our Own National Tour

TCoOO main

In 2022, our focus will be a “Taking Care of Our Own” tour for medical transport providers and other first-responders. Plans are underway! Our 2022 tour will consist of educational seminars in 5-10 cities across the country.

These one day in person workshops will provide tools and resources to address the critical mental health and wellness needs of this industry's most valuable asset; our people. Attendees will learn actionable methods for coping with burnout, compassion fatigue, stress/situational assessment, how to identify a peer in crisis and more.  Attendees will participate in interactive discussion and dialogue around these pressing issues and what to do when “its ok to not be ok.”

As the different tour stops are finalized, we will share the details including dates, times, locations and presentation title & speaker via the website, social media feeds, the occasional eBlast and in AAMS’ member newsletter, News on the Fly.
