Radiological and Nuclear Disaster Preparedness

Are we, as a nation, prepared for a radiological or nuclear attack? With concern over continued terrorist threats at home and abroad, “dirty bombs”, and the nuclear armament of rogue states, this question is just as relevant today as it was on September 11. This special session of Public Health Grand Rounds not only addresses these challenges, but reviews current efforts to improve the public health community’s ability to prepare for and respond to these threats.
