Mia Griffin, a junior Public Health major on a P.A. track, lives a busy life. Besides having a difficult major, she is the Vice President of her sorority and a volunteer EMT.
As Vice President she is in charge of all the other officers of Tri Delta. She says that her position requires a lot of organization and dedication.
She takes that dedication with her to the fire house every Friday. As an EMT she works mainly in the back of the ambulance responding to calls from the residents of College Park and University of Maryland students.
Mia showed us the equipment hidden in the outer walls of the ambulance. She told us how many patients are put in a neck brace immediately, especially if there are injuries to the head.
Even though Mia lives a hectic life, she says it is extremely rewarding and she loves doing what she does.
