At their booth titled "Save a Child: Clearing Airway Obstructions and CPR for Young Children," the faculty showcased life-saving techniques for pediatric emergencies to the younger generation.

"With prepared child body models, attendees could try basic child resuscitation techniques after instructions," described Dr. Zuzana Biringerová, PhD. "This activity attracted an enormous interest. Presenters were literally surrounded by elementary and high school students, as well as the general public," added Dr. Lukáš Martvoň, PhD.

Contrary to the belief that today's younger generation is disinterested and often passive about their surroundings, this festival demonstrated the exact opposite. JFMED, through the efforts of the Medical Education Support Center staff, reaffirmed its indispensable role in not just professional but also public education.
