Grand Rounds SPHERE: Atmospheric Dispersion of Anthrax: History and Fundamentals of a Bio-aerosol Warfare Agent

Wednesday 11/8 11:00AM - 12:00PM
Public Health A521

Americans have been alerted to a new, potential danger in the wake of anthrax attacks on the U.S. in the fall of 2001. The threat: the dispersal of chemical, biological, radiological, and nuclear (CBRN) material in populated areas. If anthrax or other CBRN material is released, how would the material disperse through the atmosphere? What are the potential health impacts? What preparedness is  possible for anthrax and other deadly bioaerosol and chemical warfare agents? Answers to these questions will be explored in this session along with a brief look at the history of the production and use of weaponized anthrax. Presented by Anthony J. Sadar, CCM, Allegheny County Health Department, Air Quality Program. Sponsored by Student Public Health Epidemic Response Effort
