Would you be able to be on call at all hours of the day to save a life? All while you raise a family and have a career as a family therapist.
You’re listening to Jewish Latin Princess. I’m your Host Yael Trusch. Welcome to the show.
My guest today has been called Hatzala’s Wonder Woman. Miriam Ballin is on the show.
Miriam, an American, now living in Israel is the Founder and National Director of Hatzalah’s Psychotrauma and Crisis Response Unit. She has been a Hatzalah medic for nearly 5 years and has won the Outstanding Medic Award in Hatzalah 2 years in a row. The first woman to achieve this!
The Talmud teaches, “He who saves a life, saves the world,” and my guest today has taken this to heart, applying it every single day.
Where does Miriam draw strength from whenever she wonders if the work is too much for her shoulders? What is family life like for Miriam as a Hatzalah medic, and as the wife of a Hatzalah medic – yes it’s a husband and wife team!? Why Psychotrauma and Crisis Response, and what is Miriam’s unit doing that is revolutionizing EMT care in Israel?
This and more in a most powerful interview with Hatzalah’s Wonder Woman: Miriam Ballin.
