Biological Agents  Lesson 1

Welcome to the Biological Agent Modules page. Dealing with a terrorist attack using bio-agents is complicated by the fact that the diseases they cause also occur naturally, and in many cases, are infrequently seen. These modules will provide you with the knowledge necessary to diagnose and manage these illnesses, in coordination with local public health departments. Upon completing these modules, you will be better prepared to minimize the impact of a bio-terrorist event.
