The EMS Board makes recommendations directly to the Wisconsin Department of Health Services on emergency medical service issues.

"Dr. Christopher Eberlein has years of experience helping people in the State of Wisconsin and our neighboring states," comments Dan Sievert, director of Gubernatorial Appointments in the Office of Governor Scott Walker. "With the opioid epidemic still harming families, it makes it even more important to have people with an abundance of experience serving on our Emergency Medical Services Board. We are confident Dr. Eberlein will support all of our communities through his efforts."

Dr. Eberlein in the region's first and only physician to serve on the board.

"I wanted to give our area a voice," he says. "A lot of decisions made at that level impacts us."

Brian Vamstad, PhD, government relations manager at Gundersen, calls Dr. Eberlein "a leader and innovator on providing emergency medicine.”

"He is sought out for his expertise in program development, patient care and frequently consulted by the media to provide perspectives on trauma care and opioid issues impacting western Wisconsin. As a physician he will bring a valuable perspective to the Wisconsin EMS Board," Vamstad says.

In January, Dr. Eberlein became the first physician in the region to achieve Emergency Medical Services (EMS) subspecialty Board Certification.

Dr. Eberlein has been an Emergency Medicine physician at Gundersen for 12 years and is board certified in Emergency Medicine. He also is the medical director for Gundersen Tri-State Ambulance and Tri-State Regional Ambulance.
