ANNOUNCING NEW PRE-CONFERENCE COURSE

Radiological & Chemical Agents of Opportunity for Terrorism (AoO): Toxic Industrial Chemicals (TICs), Toxic Industrial Materials (TIMs) and Toxic Radiological Materials (TRMs)

In recent years, there has been growing concern that many of the most likely terrorist threats will involve “agents of opportunity” or materials that are readily available in most communities around the country.

This two-day course is designed to familiarize health care providers and others who might have a role in planning and preparations for an emergency response to toxic exposures with a variety of toxic syndromes. The course will review the medical and psychological consequences of exposures to a variety of materials.

The Radiation Emergency Assistance Center/Training Site (REAC/TS) and the American College of Medical Toxicology (ACMT) are pleased to offer this course on emergency medical response to exposures from radioactive materials and toxic chemicals. The Office of the Director of the National Center for Environmental Health and the Agency for Toxic Substances & Disease Registry (NCEH/ATSDR) at the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC) has supported independent development of a 1-day Agents of Opportunity (AoO) course by the ACMT and a 1-day course in Radiation Emergency Medicine (REM) by REAC/TS.

No Charge for Course, Course Materials and CME Credit BUT REGISTER BY THE DEADLINE OF 1 February 2011, in order to receive a course manual.
