Every year paramedics in the Milwaukee area respond to tens of thousands of calls for help. Research has shown that a very small number of callers - a group of about 100 people - are responsible for thousands of those emergency calls.

This summer, UWM's College of Nursing and the Milwaukee Fire Department are collaborating on a special program to train paramedics on how to provide special care to those repeat callers.

This interview originally aired August 20, 2015.

Tom Luljak hosted UWM Today on WUWM for more than two decades and is the inaugural host of Curious Campus.
