DemFromCT :: 6-26-09 ARCHIVE Pandemic Flu Community Resilience Webinar
The following is a message from the webinar moderator:

Dear Colleagues,

Thank you for your participation in last week's seminal Pandemic Information Sharing & Community Resilience Workshop hosted at the National Library of Medicine.

On June 26, 2009, major steps were taken towards building a coalition of willing participants internal and external to government to better our nation's planning and response efforts in support of the upcoming 2009 flu season.

For those of you who were unable to attend the workshop, the full proceedings can be viewed via webinar at:


We will be posting additional materials, including archives of the breakout sessions and related PowerPoint slides on a collaboratory in the near future.  Details will be forthcoming.

Additionally, we will keep you apprised of several meetings leading up to the September 1st 2009 mid-term initiative review of the 120 day mission, which starts today, July 1 2009.

We look forward to working with you to mitigate the impact of the second wave of SO-H1N1 this fall, and will be in touch soon to begin an active engagement across all our focus groups and communities.

Dr. Michael McDonald

same venue, two weeks from now...

CNN has learned that the Obama administration is planning to convene a "flu summit" next week to make preparations for the fall, as officials in Argentina declare a health emergency because 35 people have died in the Latin American nation from swine flu.

Senior Obama administration officials stressed the summit, which will be convened July 9 at the National Institutes of Health in Bethesda, Maryland, is being held strictly as a precautionary measure to make sure the U.S. is prepared for any potential swine flu outbreak, and not because of any specific fear of a crisis.  

Sebelius will also co-chair a "flu summit" to be held next week at the U.S. National Institutes of Health. The other co-chairs include Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano and Secretary of Education Arne Duncan. Sources tell ScienceInsider that the day-long summit will focus on making sure that states are prepared in the fall should the spread of the novel H1N1 virus increase as temperatures drop, which many experts predict will occur. Invitees include governors and state health officials, and the draft agenda includes discussion of vaccine distribution, the role of schools, community mitigation, and risk communications.
