Dr. Virginia Caine:
Hello, I’m Dr. Virginia Caine. Welcome to today’s broadcast, “Anthrax: What Every Clinician Should Know, Part 2.” This, the second in our series of special public health training network programs, is designed to prepare personnel in the medical and public health system to work together to combat the spread of anthrax. Today we are coming to you live from the Howard University television studios at Howard University here in Washington, D.C. We have assembled a panel of experts from our sponsors the National Medical Association, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and local public health. Our panel of experts will provide a specially tailored program that will address the informational and educational needs of physicians, nurses, clinicians, and other healthcare providers serving in private offices, hospitals, and public health settings including those that serve minority and underserved populations. During the program we will present an overview of the clinical, laboratory, and epidemiological features of anthrax that you should know, as well as those special public health prevention and response recommendations needed to combat the occurrence of this disease. Emphasis will be placed on the educational and informational needs unique to the minority and underserved populations. As you all know, nationally we are confronted by an environment of evolving science and epidemiology. Today, the panel will also present late-breaking information which can be found at the CDC’s Web site on bioterrorism and the Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Review you all know as the MMWR. These sites are updated daily.
We also have with us a special group of medical leaders in the African-American community who will pose questions and discussion topics to our panel.
