Dear EMS Partners,

As we approach EMS Week from May 21st to 27th, 2023, we cannot help but reminisce about the origins of this momentous occasion. EMS Week was established to honor the pioneering EMS practitioners who had just begun establishing their vital roles within emergency medicine and public health and safety.

Today, our EMS professionals have evolved into front-line warriors, tirelessly adapting and responding to the COVID-19 crisis and ensuring the well-being of the communities we serve.

This year's EMS Week theme, "EMS: Where Emergency Care Begins," resonates deeply in these challenging times. Every day, we overcome numerous obstacles and continue to provide unwavering support, care, and dedication to our communities. Now, more than ever, it is crucial to recognize and celebrate the exceptional EMS professionals and first responders who contribute to our nation's health and safety.

UVA Health, LSLC, Prehospital Education, Emergency Medicine, and Stroke Team, to mention a few, take immense pride in honoring the extraordinary men and women of EMS, who play an indispensable role in healthcare and community support. The outstanding professionalism, commitment, and expertise of these individuals often make all the difference for our patients, resulting in positive outcomes.

With great enthusiasm, we invite you to join our 2023 EMS Week Celebrations. Let us come together to acknowledge and appreciate your invaluable efforts throughout the year.

Best regards


EMS Week 2023
