Dear U of MN Medical Reserve Corps Members,

The U of M MRC unit's uniqueness and strength is defined, in part, by our ability to respond to both human AND animal related disasters. 

We are offering two events in the next few weeks tailored to those interested in learning more about animal emergency preparedness and response. 

As always, please feel free to contact me with any questions regarding upcoming events or anything that pertains to your membership in the MRC program.

Warm regards,
Kathy
