Pandemic Influenza Preparedness Workplan and Progress Report
Friday, September 15, 2006
Over the past three years, significant progress has been made toward increasing the University of Minnesota's overall emergency response capabilities through the revision of our Emergency Operations Plan under the leadership of the Department of Emergency Management and the Emergency Management Policy Committee. As part of that process, new systems have been established for responding to public health emergencies, such as incidents of bioterrorism or infectious disease outbreaks, on campus. The Academic Health Center, through the Office of Emergency Response, has taken a lead role in this area of preparedness planning and response on campus and is also working aggressively with local and state public health partners to explore and prepare for our potential role as responders in a larger local, state, or national emergency.
