COVID-19 Fact of the Week

Fever is an unreliable benchmark for COVID-19.

MD1’s Hero of the Week

Kristina Dauernheim, MS PA, EMT


A recent graduate of Seton Hall’s Physician Assistant Program, Kristina is also a dedicated volunteer EMT and co-training officer for the South Orange Rescue Squad. Throughout PA school she continued to volunteer and brought her positive outlook and energy to the squad’s training efforts. 

“My membership and all that I have learned with Community Ambulance Company in Sayville, NY as a youth squad member and eventual NY EMT and South Orange Rescue Squad as a NJ EMT and co-training officer has shaped me into the provider that I am and will continue to be today. I will always be indebted to EMS as where I got my start into the wonderful field of medicine!”

Congratulations, Kristina!
