CARLSBAD, Calif. – The James O. Page Legacy Scholarship, endowed by Hartwell Medical, is now open and accepting applications through May 1. Created in partnership with the Fitch EMS Foundation, the scholarship program is named after the late Jim Page, regarded by many as the father of modern EMS. It is designed to broaden the perspective and sharpen the skills of new and aspiring leaders to help formulate the future of EMS here and abroad.
“I worked with Jim in the early years of JEMS and EMS Today,” said Gary Williams, President and CEO of Hartwell Medical. “He made a tremendous impression on me personally and on my career. Jim was passionate about mentoring young leaders with a consistent message of making the patient the priority. We are proud to endow this scholarship and continue Jim’s vision.”
The scholarship recipient receives a free registration and travel expenses to the 2023 Pinnacle EMS Leadership Forum, hosted by Fitch & Associates. The core of the scholarship is a structured six-part mentorship program, facilitated by Dr. Jay Fitch himself, founding partner of the firm named after him and well-known speaker, author and educator.
The mentorship, which begins at Pinnacle, will tackle tough leadership questions over the course of six months, such as ethical decision making, effective communication skills and the use of personal vs. positional power.
A fire chief, attorney, state EMS director, writer, publisher and speaker, Jim Page dedicated his life to serving others. Go here to learn more about the James O. Page Legacy Scholarship and the man himself.
