Columbia's Mailman School of Public Health, in conjunction with U.S. Representative Nita Lowey, will host a Forum on Public Health and Bioterrorism Preparedness on Tuesday, April 2.
The half-day forum will focus on public health responses to the events of September 11, the anthrax incidents that followed and on-going concerns about bioterrorism in New York and around the nation. It will also examine the research implications and new priorities stemming from these events. The forum will feature speakers from the New York City and State Health Departments, the National Institutes of Health, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, as well as research scientists and public health experts. Representative Lowey, a leader in Congress on health-related issues, will offer the keynote address.
This forum offers a unique opportunity to discuss priorities for strengthening public health training, practice and research with colleagues and with Representative Lowey. The forum will be held in Room 555 of Alfred Lerner Hall, from 9:00 a.m. through noon.
The forum is open to members of the Columbia community. Please RSVP to Colleen Chattergoon by March 29, including your name, title, institution, address, phone number and Email address. For additional details, contact Susan Long at (212) 854-1116 or Susan Smith at (212) 305-5270.
