Denver Health is excited to launch a new monthly live lecture and webinar series for EMS. Lectures will take place the third Thursday of every month from 6-7pm in Rita Bass Classrooms A/B and be available via live webinar. Pediatric trauma and medical EMS CE will be offered (categorized for Colorado and National Registry recertification hours). Nursing CNE will be offered, as well, but lectures are geared for prehospital providers. Many lectures will be case reviews. Contact Megan Strawhacker at for more information.


We apologize, but there will not be a Stories from the Street series for the month of November. However, we are excited to announce our new Pediatric Lecture Series. We will have our first lecture November 20 from 6-7 p.m. 


About Stories from The Street

As the region's leader in trauma and emergency care, Denver Health's Rocky Mountain Level I Trauma Center is committed to providing unique and relevant education for prehospital care providers.

We are pleased to host the monthly education trauma/EMS education lecture series developed specifically for EMTs, Paramedics, and Critical Care Paramedics: Stories from The Street - Level I Trauma Lecture Series for EMS.

Our lectures present collaborative, multidisciplinary case reviews, beginning with the attending EMT or paramedic discussing scene and prehospital care, followed by a Denver Health physician who discusses the patient's hospital course and outcomes. The physician also offers prehospital tips and guidance specific to the injuries discussed in the case.

Topics and case studies are selected from throughout the region to include patients transported directly by any EMS agency to Denver Health and patients who received prehospital and hospital care and were transferred to Denver Health from outside the metro area. Both adult and pediatric cases will be reviewed.

Lectures are free and open to all prehospital providers to attend in person or view as a webinar. They are held the second Tuesday each month from 12 pm - 1 pm at the Rita Bass Trauma and EMS Education Institute Auditorium. EMS continuing education hours provided.
