Trailer: Endlessly Persistent—The Story of America's First Female Paramedics

Some of America’s first female paramedics represented the private ambulance services of Portland, Ore., in the mid-1970s. Their entry into the emerging field of prehospital cardiac care met resistance from patients and colleagues alike. Their success required exquisite care and thick skin.

In an original new film, Endlessly Persistent: The Story of America’s First Female Paramedics, EMS World gathers five of these earliest trailblazers for a frank roundtable discussion of the challenges, successes, and times they faced.
