UCLA’s Center for Prehospital Care is proud to announce Remle Crowe, PhD, NREMT as the inaugural recipient of the Power of One Award

The Power of One is the first award of its kind in EMS research and recognizes a special individual affecting a great many people in the world of EMS research...


Just in the past two years, Dr. Crowe has helped the EMS community produce more than 50 research abstracts and support new researchers daily to advance EMS with science. Her efforts have elevated the importance of data and data-driven rigor to a national and international level in a way that stratospherically springboards science in EMS while improving the health and safety of communities.

Dr. Kim McKenna, PCRF Board Member, describes Dr. Crowe as the embodiment of what it means to be a mentor and credits Dr. Crowe for guiding countless novice EMS researchers in their quest to discover new knowledge that will help to inform and improve the industry. Dr. McKenna goes on to say, “As a research mentor Dr. Crowe helps novice researchers design, analyze and publish their work. All of this is done with a firm hand to advance the work and a sense of humor that makes this difficult work fun.” Fellow researcher and PCRF Board Member, Dr. Jeff Jarvis sings Dr. Crowe’s praises in saying “She has done an amazing job mentoring young (and not so young) researchers and making EMS research more approachable. Our entire profession is so much better because of her efforts!”

Remle Crowe, PhD, NREMT, is the Director of Clinical and Operational Research at ESO where she provides strategic direction for the research mission of the organization, including oversight of a warehouse research data set of de-identified records. ESO is a leading data and software company serving emergency medical services (EMS), fire departments, hospitals, state/provincial and national agencies.

Thank you Dr. Crowe for your selfless support of others and your extraordinary collaborative leadership.
