Medical Reserve Corps adds to leadership team

The Middle Tennessee Medical Reserve Corps, housed in the National Center for Emergency Preparedness at Vanderbilt University School of Nursing, recently announced three additions: Warren McPherson, M.D., medical director; the Rev. Frederick Dettwiller II, chaplain corps leader; and Roderick Davidson Deal, pharmacy corps leader.

McPherson, M.D., has spent 30 years in the clinical practice of neurosurgery and was chairman of the State Volunteer Mutual Insurance Company for 11 years. McPherson has been a board member with Physicians Insurance Association of America and served as its chairman for four years.

Dettwiller is canon for finance, administration and development for the Episcopal Diocese of Tennessee. His previous positions included serving as deacon of St. Phillips Church in Nashville and pastor of the Church of Our Saviour in Gallatin, Tenn. An outspoken advocate for civil rights and education, he is past chair of the Tennessee Human Rights Commission and served 12 years as chairman of the Tennessee State University Foundation Board of Trustees.

Deal has served as a clinical instructor at VUSN for the past four years, where he first became involved with the Middle Tennessee Medical Reserve Corps. He is a veteran in retail pharmacy, having spent 27 years in the industry, 25 years of that time at CVS.
