Texas A&M Disaster Day coming to Disaster City for the first time

By  | 

It's always a good idea to be prepared. Next year, that's happening in a big way with Texas A&M's Disaster Day.

The Texas A&M Health Science Center Disaster Day was initiated by the College of Nursing in 2008 as a mass casualty simulation for 35 nursing students.

It has grown in size and scope over the last decade and is now the nation's largest student-run inter-professional disaster simulation.

This year the school anticipates over 600 students from the Colleges of Nursing, Medicine, Pharmacy, and the School of Public Health to participate.

This marks the 10th anniversary of this important event so the school is collaborating with the Texas A&M Engineering Extension Service's Disaster City.

This is the first time Disaster Day will be hosted at Disaster City.
