Georgetown Village ER Flash Drive Program
Georgetown Village is very excited to be able to present each of our members with a flash drive pre-loaded with a form for you to enter your important medical information. This program is available to our members because of a very generous donation from John Bradshaw, a GV volunteer and Georgetown resident. John heard me talking about this program when I returned from the Village to Village annual conference and offered to cover the cost of bringing this program to our members. We are extremely grateful to John for providing this for Georgetown Village members.
The pre-loaded form on the flash drive includes space for you to enter current medications, allergies, emergency contacts and other important information. Here is a link to the ER Info ER Info Form In addition, you can upload copies of any medical directives or other important information you would want communicated in the event of an emergency. We are the first Village in the DC area to offer this, and the program is based on a successful program being offered by Avenidas Village.
