Eli Beer is the Founder of United Hatzalah of Israel and President of Friends of United Hatzalah, Israel's largest all-volunteer emergency medical response organization. Eli began to work at his family's book and real estate businesses at the age of 13 and began to volunteer on ambulances at the age of 15, twice a week. At the age of 17 he realized that a more flexible system has to be established to improve response time in case of emergencies. United Hatzalah has grown impressively since its establishment and now has over 4500 EMT's, paramedics and doctors volunteering within its framework. Eli has been awarded numerous prizes and acknowledgments across the globe for innovative and lifesaving work.
