Behind the glam and glitz of Super Bowl 46, Andrew Roszak, JD/MPA, Class of 2008, was hard at work. Roszak serves as Senior Preparedness Advisor at MESH, a public/private non-profit agency based in Indianapolis that works with emergency service agencies in the region to respond to emergency events and to sustain efforts and remain viable through recovery. As you can imagine, Roszak had his hands full during Super Bowl 46, the first-ever Super Bowl hosted in Indianapolis.
As part of the proactive strategy to ensure viability of the health care infrastructure, MESH, along with its hospital partners established the “Super Care Clinic”, a first for Super Bowl games. The Super Care Clinic was located in Super Bowl Village and was available to treat minor injuries, illnesses or medical conditions. The clinic was a major success, treating patients from twelve different states and receiving world-wide media attention.
In addition to the Super Care Clinic, Roszak was responsible for staffing the Marion County Multi-Agency Coordination Center (MedMACC), which provides coordination between private sector health care entities and providers, the Indianapolis Division of Homeland Security, the Marion County Public Health Department and numerous non-governmental organizations. In Support of Super Bowl 46, the MedMACC was operational and staffed 24 hours a day for a eleven day period.
Roszak thoroughly enjoyed the experience and was proud to be a part of the behind-the-scenes activities that ensured a successful, and safe, Super Bowl experience.
