Presentation given by Dr. Francis Battisti on post-traumatic stress disorder as a portion of the 3rd annual Mock Environmental Disaster Event.

The 3rd annual Mock Environmental Disaster Event took place on Friday, May 2nd at 2:00 pm. Participating Departments included Medical Assisting, EMT/Paramedics, Nursing, Health Information Technology, Radiologic Technology, Physical Therapist Assistant, Dental Hygiene, Clinical Laboratory Technologies, Criminal Justice, Fire Protection, Homeland Security, Theater, Communications, Hospitality and Public Safety.

The educational goals of the exercise are to provide a hands on practical experience for selected students in their field of study and a practical observation experience for students who do not participate but observe. Students are expected to gain valuable insight into operational aspects of their field of study by doing and observing. They will then be able to critically analyze their actions and participation level through use of media, as the event will be documented through video. This is a critical event that will help the students be prepared for real life events they will soon face in the workplace.
