Celebrating the MERT 15th Anniversary!
The Penn student-led group Medical Emergency Response Team (MERT) celebrated its 15th Anniversary in style last weekend with a fun gala event. Attendees included many MERT alumns, including MERT’s current Medical Director and former member, Dr. Joshua Glick.
Public Safety is proud to support the MERT in partnership with Penn’s Office of Risk Management & Insurance.
