Air Medical Today Episode 18 - EPNetwork

Episode 18 of the Air Medical Today Podcast has been published.  In this episode I interview Dustin Duncan, Chairperson of the Family Grant Fund and Children’s Scholarship Program Committees for the MedEvac Foundation International.

Dustin H. Duncan, RN, CEN, CMTE began his career in EMS as a volunteer Emergency Medical Technician while attending high school in south eastern South Dakota.  As an EMT, he was exposed to air medical transport which ultimately played a large part in his pursuit of becoming a flight nurse.

After three years of working in the Intensive Care Unit, Emergency Department and in a Burn Unit as an RN, Dustin became a flight nurse with Mercy Flight in north central Montana.  Since Mercy, he has worked as a chief flight nurse, flight program manager, and interim roles as an Emergency Department Director in Montana and western Colorado.  In January 2010, Dustin became the Clinical Services Manager with AirLink Critical Care Transport in Bend, Oregon.

He currently serves on the board of directors for the MedEvac Foundation International and serves as the Chairperson of the Family Grant Fund and Children’s Scholarship Program Committees.  Dustin previously served on the board of directors for the Association of Air Medical Services and the Colorado Organization of Nurse Leaders.

Outside of work, Dustin’s free time is spent with his family and enjoying a passion for unique classic cars.  This includes his fully restored 1956 Cadillac Ambulance that frequents many parades and car shows.   I have not seen this gem in person but in viewing many pictures that he posts it is in mint condition.

Dustin’s wife and two boys, 9 & 11, will be making the move to Bend later in May after school is out.
