A Visit to Boston MedFlight


Members of East Providence Girl Scout Troops 417 and 519 as well as other Girl Scouts from Southeastern New England recently visited the Boston MedFlight hangar for a STEM Career Exploration (C,S,A) program. During this badge-earning STEM Career Exploration Day, they toured the communication center and the human patient simulator lab. They also met with the Boston MedFlight medical crew. Each professional shared their career pathways and discussed opportunities for the children to explore as they grew older.

Boston MedFlight has been the region's primary provider of critical care medical transport by air and ground, including the most critically ill and injured infants, children and adults for more than 37 years. As a nonprofit organization, they provide free and unreimbursed care to patients in need with little or no medical insurance. It was recognized as one of the Top 100 Women-Led Businesses in Massachusetts in 2022 by the Women's Edge and Boston Globe magazine.
