In addition to partnering with local Indian hospitals, Piyush Tewari has been working to enhance SaveLife by visiting leading medical facilities around the world. He recently spent two weeks with specialists from Harvard Medical School and the Boston EMS to learn management of emergency medical response, an opportunity supported by the Rolex Awards for Enterprise. He also is looking to engage with the Johns Hopkins International Injury Research Unit and the School of Emergency Medicine in the U.K. in order to advance, measure and certify SaveLife’s work.
“The two-week interactive programme helped me get a close understanding of best practices in pre-hospital as well as in-hospital emergency management,” Tewari says. “This is crucial considering one of our future goals at SaveLIFE Foundation is to improve the overall emergency care scenario in India by bringing global best practices and localizing them to the Indian environment and needs.”Learn more about Piyush Tewari
