Public Medical was founded by two retired Cincinnati firefighters/paramedics Raffel Prophett and Charles Thompson. With 50+ year between they observed the social/economic disparities that drive EMS to make a disproportionate number of medical runs in the African-American, other communities of Color, and poor communities.

We are committed to a data-driven education integrated approach that will reduce the number of emergency runs, improve outcomes and empower patients.

Our goal is to collaborate with area organizations, communities, public safety and medical experts. This collaborative approach will hopefully create the kids of programs aligned with the core mission of Public Medical.
