A CareFlite helicopter landed on campus on a Friday afternoon in March between the main quad fountain and the flagpole. Sponsored by Alpha Epsilon Delta, the health pre-professional honor society, the demonstration gave students an opportunity to discuss critical care with a CareFlite medic, nurse, and pilot. “It’s so different seeing things rather than reading about them,” says Elizabeth Chung, a sophomore pre-med major who previously worked with CareFlite and helped organize the event. “I wanted to help students get beyond the textbook.”
