Volunteers sought for public health exercise

Six area public health agencies, including Sherburne and Wright counties, are planning an exercise where they will test their ability to dispense medications to large groups of people in the case of large-scale disease outbreak.

Volunteers are being recruited to help from 1:30 to 2:30 p.m. Tuesday, June 28 at Zimmerman High School. Volunteers will go through a mock clinic just like they would if they were receiving medication in real life. The first 200 volunteers to participate will receive a $10 gas/food gift card at the end of the exercise.
