Congratulations to our own Brian Wheeler on receiving the California EMS Authority's Meritorious Service Award!
Brian is being recognized for his leadership, educational and scholarly activities that have helped to make the UCLA Paramedic Education Program one of the best in the country, and earned him a reputation as a gifted educator, a creative scholar, and a realistic leader. Wheeler's portion of the program - didactic - has one of the highest pass rates in the country and educates more than 150 paramedics annually. Wheeler's scholarly endeavors follow the pathway of taking an innovative concept, developing it in logical, comprehensive, and understandable sequence, and seeing it through to completion. As an educator, Wheeler often works weekends and stays late to mentor and spend time with his students.
