ASU Medical Reserve Corps ( 2339 )

Profile:
The Arizona State University Medical Reserve Corps (ASU-MRC) is a group of Arizona State University (ASU) medical and volunteer non-medical ASU professionals whose primary mission to assist ASU in dealing with medical surge capacity in cases of a local disaster, including assisting mass prophylaxis/vaccination clinics or other major public health needs. We coordinate our efforts under the guidance of the ASU President and ASU Emergency Policy Executive and when activated our Emergency Operations Center utilizing National Incident Management System guidelines. We partner with the Maricopa County Department of Public Health’s Office of Preparedness and Response, the Arizona Department of Health Services Bureau of Public Health Emergency Preparedness, and the Arizona Department of Emergency Management. In the past, the ASU MRC has worked on projects as part of the ASU Pandemic Committee including mass vaccination exercises, a statewide Pandemic Planning conference held at ASU, and participation in statewide exercises such as “Coyote Crisis” exercises.
