Dunn decided to enroll at Quinnipiac on the pre-med track in 2018. In his first year as a Bobcat, he volunteered to help a student in the Frank H. Netter MD School of Medicine with his "Stop the Bleed" capstone project by assisting with teaching the course to members of the Quinnipiac community.
After teaching the course to the health services staff, he was invited to join the committee to help launch Quinnipiac University EMS, the university's supplemental first responder agency. With his help and guidance, the group has expanded to include more than 75 student volunteers that provide a critical network of first-responders across the Quinnipiac campuses.
"Building this team gave me the opportunity to learn how to be a leader, manage budgets and find ways to motivate and inspire others,” he said. “It has also given me the experience and confidence to teach and consult with others on building effective EMS departments."
