About the speaker:
Guy Melamed recently finished four and half years of military service as a non-commissioned officer in the Israel Defense Force elite 669 Airborne Rescue and Evacuation Unit. He grew up in the pioneering community of Hoshaya, located in the Yezreel Valley. During high school, Guy participated in and headed several leadership programs including the Bronfman Youth Fellowships and the Israel Foreign Service Young Ambassadors program. He was also elected Youth Chairman of the Yezreel Valley Regional Council. It was during high school that Guy discovered his passion for emergency medicine and thus started dedicating his time to volunteering with Magen David Adom United Hatzalah as a medic and later as a paramedic, and in the emergency room at Rambam Medical Center in Haifa. Guy is also a writer and a 2nd degree black belt in Shotokan Karate.
