Education of Community Responders & Healthcare Providers in Terrorism And Bioterrorism-Related Issues

One of the most powerful defenses we have against terrorism and bioterrorism is education. Education guides coherent emergency response and reduces fear caused by terrorism events.

Case Western Reserve University is currently collaborating with the City of Cleveland, Cuyahoga County, and State of Ohio agencies by providing a series of educational forums directed toward orientation and training of healthcare workers and emergency and first responders. Nine major educational programs coordinated through the University's Center for Science, Health, & Society and Continuing Medical Education program have already received enthusiastic response and have been widely attended by a variety of community and regional emergency responders and health workers.
