On March 27, the Public Health Emergency Management Office will be conducting a Point of Dispensing Clinic and we need help recruiting 700 volunteer patients to validate our emergency plan
The purpose of this exercise is to simulate our public health response procedure in the event of Pandemic Influenza outbreak, conduct a time study for the mock patients, and to validate our Just-In-Time training. Volunteers will not be receiving any medications or shots at this exercise. THIS IS ONLY A DRILL!!!
