Preparedness: Role of Research
Post by Day 3, Wednesday, a brief description of how the scientific research community supports public health preparedness. Then outline and discuss the infrastructure associated with supporting this research. Next, describe the Public Health Medical Countermeasures Enterprise and related activities. Then identify three federal agencies involved in public health preparedness research, and discuss the role each agency plays in supporting public health preparedness research.
Read a selection of your classmates’ postings and by Day 6, Saturday, respond to your colleagues by: (a) expanding on your classmate colleague’s posting; (b) offering an insight from having read your classmate’s posting; (c) corroborating an idea from your own experience; (d) concurring or disagreeing by explaining why with supporting evidence or concepts from the readings or literature; (d) asking a probing question.
