Two veteran Vanderbilt LifeFlight paramedics have been named Medical Affairs Managers.  Bo Phillips, B.S., CCP, FP-C, IC, and Eric Newman, CCP, FP-C, will be responsible for overseeing education, relationships and customer service with medical and emergency service providers.

They replace Liz Reeves, B.S., RN, AEMT, IC, who recently transitioned to a new role with Air Methods Corporation to work with LifeFlight as Tennessee program director.  Phillips and Newman join a very active division of LifeFlight that oversees marketing, business development, public relations and external customer education. More than 3,300 EMS, fire, 911 and hospital personnel were trained by LifeFlight educators this past year.  Each will also continue to work as an active flight crew member, to maintain their skills and competency for patient care.

Newman started with Vanderbilt LifeFlight in 2013 as a critical care flight paramedic, where he also co-coordinated the outreach program EMS Night Out. He is a former EMS director and also flew as a flight paramedic with Memphis

Phillips has been a part of the Vanderbilt program since 2010. He served as flight paramedic, chief flight paramedic and manages the Critical Care Paramedic training program. He is a former flight paramedic with PHI Air Medical, an education coordinator with Air Methods Corporation and an EMS operations manager with Rural Metro. He currently is an adjunct faculty member with Motlow State Community College EMS program.

“We are so fortunate to have Bo and Eric assume these new roles,” said Lis Henley, RN, AEMT, program director for Vanderbilt LifeFlight. “With their broad backgrounds in EMS and education they will be a great resource for our customers.”
