Emergency Preparedness for Special Populations

Children and Special Populations

The NYMC Center for Disaster Medicine (CDM) has expertise in emergency preparedness for special populations such as but not limited to children, the elderly and people with disabilities. Such special populations require specially tailored programs for its consumers and healthcare professionals.

We also offer American Heart Association (AHA) courses such as Pediatric Advanced Life Support (PALS) and Pediatric Emergency Assessment, Recognition and Stabilization (PEARS) specifically designed for pediatric patients.
