The Stars of Life Program is an annual event hosted by the American Ambulance Association (AAA) that recognizes and celebrates over 100 ambulance professionals that have gone above and beyond to serve their communities and the EMS profession. Another goal of Stars of Life is to highlight the critical role of EMS in our healthcare infrastructure. The three-day event is put on by the American Ambulance Association and is held in Washington, D.C. In the past, Stars have had the opportunity to meet with lawmakers, go on sightseeing tours, and visit the U.S. Capitol building.
