Botulism: University Reports and Verification of Findings


In November 2002, CDC began a cooperative agreement with the Association of Schools of Public Health (ASPH) to develop “pre-event” emergency message content for terrorism events. This project, called the Pre-Event Message Development Project (PEMD), was precipitated by the communication challenges identified after the 2001 anthrax attacks. Four university teams were selected to lead this multi-year communication research effort. The UCLA School of Public Health concentrated their analysis, report writing, and message recommendations on botulism.
