Health Emergency Response Team

In situations when broader consultation is required in order to determine the best course of action, the Health Emergency Response Team (HERT) is convened by the Vice President for Health Sciences. The HERT consists of AHC officials representing administration, medicine, public health and communications; as well as the administrators from Boynton Health Service, Department of Emergency Management, and Student Affairs. The HERT, or a subset of the team, will be activated, as needed, at the time of a health-related emergency on campus or if the University is called upon to assist with a state or regional public health emergency.
