News in 90 With Rolynn Wilson – Healthcare on Wheels


What’s up Bulls! I’m Rolynn Wilson and you are watching News in 90 where we deliver your on-campus news in 90 seconds. Student Health Services, the University Emergency Medicine Student Association, and Student Government have joined together to develop a Medical Response Unit that will help students receive care at USF. The operations coordinator, Austin Jared shares more. The Medical Response Unit is a field extension of the Student Health Services Clinic. It is our goal to be able to be as big of a resource for students as we can. So, if are sick or hurt on this campus and you don’t feel like you have a life-threatening emergency that arises to the level of 9-1-1, you can call the Medical Response Unit program. We will come out with our staffed EMTs and paramedics to treat you and stabilize you on scene, and then transport you for free back to the Student Health Services clinic for further care and treatment by a physician that works there. The Medical Response Unit offers many services from certified paramedics, emergency medical responders, and emergency medical technicians that are available to students for free. News in 90 correspondent Kayla Gamble shares more. The Medical Response Unit is staffed by undergraduate students who are able to gain experience in their field, while serving the USF community. With the MRU, we are not only gaining medical experience, getting people involved in the program, but we are able to take everything that we’ve learned and who we are and give back to the university in a beneficial way. This new service provides transportation to sick or injured students to the Student Health Services Clinic on-campus. I’m Kayla Gamble with News in 90 and as always Go Bulls! While the Medical Response Unit provides basic life support care for students, it’s always important to call 9-1-1 in case of an emergency. I’m Rolynn Wilson with Housing and Residential Education, we are the best place to live, best place to work, and the best place to learn. Until next time, Go Bulls!
