The Role of the Pharmacist in Emergency Care and Bioterrorism

Across the United States, people are afraid. Parents are warning their children not to open the mail. Office workers worry about incoming mail and grouse that their bosses would order safety precaution more quickly if they, themselves, were handling the mail.

Having just returned from the American Public Health Association (APHA) Annual meeting in Atlanta, Georgia (home of the Centers for Disease Control - CDC), I think it would be advantageous to look at some of the issues involved in the pharmacist's role in emergency preparedness and bioterrorism.
