CDC Awards $24 million to support pandemic preparedness in schools.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has awarded $24 million to fund 55 projects in 29 state and local public health departments that could serve as innovative approaches for influenza pandemic preparedness in schools.
"What is learned from these projects can benefit everyone because it could improve national, regional and local public health detection and response to a pandemic involving influenza," said Richard Besser, MD, Director of CDC's Coordinating Office for Terrorism Preparedness and Emergency Response.
