$1.1 million grant helps UTHSC fight bioterrorism

August 2004

The Health Science Center is administering a two-year, $1.1 million bioterrorism curriculum development grant from the U.S. Health Resources and Services Administration. Allied health professions students, who are critical future members of the health care team and have the potential to improve the nationís response to acts of bioterrorism, natural disasters and other public health emergencies, are expected to benefit from training materials under development through "Texas C.A.R.E.s," a statewide program coordinated by the Health Science Center. C.A.R.E.s stands for "Curriculum for Allied Health Response to Emergencies."

Texas C.A.R.E.s participants from the Health Science Center, Dallas, Amarillo and Laredo adopted guidelines to develop training materials for allied health students in two-year, four-year and masterís degree programs. Texas C.A.R.E.s also will target high school students from a health science magnet program in Laredo and border health volunteers known as "promotoras."

Marilyn Harrington, Ph.D., dean of the Health Science Centerís School
of Allied Health Sciences, is the principal investigator.
