Join us for “Mortuary Response to Puerto Rico” with Michael Gedert, Cincinnati Equitable Life Insurance Company
Michael Gedert is a licensed Funeral Director and Embalmer who has served on state and federal Disaster Mortuary Operational Response Teams (DMORT) since 1987. His years of deployment experiences and diverse assortment of missions has provided a broad perspective for disaster mortuary response. This program will look at the mortuary response mission and the role Funeral Directors played in the response to Puerto Rico in the aftermath of Hurricane Maria. After the major hurricane ravaged the island, storm deaths and post storm deaths began to overwhelm the one coroner on the island of 3.5 million people. The program will also look at how the lack of power, clean water, fuel, transportation and safe roadways impacted the population and funeral home operations. It will also discuss the debate that is still in the news regarding the true death toll from the hurricane.
2 Hours of Continuing Education has been applied for with the Georgia State Board of Funeral Service & Alabama Board of Funeral Service.

These seats feature indoor and outdoor seating, all-inclusive full ballpark fair menu (with much more than just hot dogs and popcorn), includes non-alcoholic beverages, as well as access to a private bar and restrooms. Don’t worry about finding a park, we’ll meet at the Hilton Atlanta/Marietta Hotel and take professional shuttle transportation to the park and back to the hotel.
Wednesday, September 19, our golfers will enjoy a first class tournament at the City Club Marietta. This challenging, mountain course offers the finest playing experience among rolling hills, towering pines and spectacular Southern vistas.
