CDC To Hold Live Satellite Broadcast on Anthrax
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) will hold a live satellite broadcast on Thursday, Oct. 18, from 4-5:30 p.m. EDT, and a re-broadcast on Monday, Oct. 22, from 5-6:30 p.m. EDT, aimed at helping health care workers correctly recognize, test, diagnose, treat and report potential cases that could be attributed to anthrax. The broadcast also will include an overview of CDC readiness and response to recent events.
"Anthrax: What Every Clinician Should Know" will feature Tommy Thompson, Secretary, Department of Health & Human Services, and Jeffrey P. Koplan, MD, MPH, Director, CDC, on the panel of experts. A question-and-answer session will enable participants nationwide to pose questions to panelists via fax or e-mail during the program.
