The Union County Local Emergency Preparedness Committee and area health care professionals will participate in the conference at the AHEC-South Arkansas, 460 W. Oak, El Dorado.

Jim Cox of AHEC-South Arkansas will moderate the conference. Steven Strode, M.D., of UAMS Regional Programs; Jay Gandy, Ph.D., of the UAMS College of Public Health; Randall Whitmore, co-chair of the Union County Local Emergency Preparedness Committee; and Jerry Brumley of Lion Oil Company, will speak.

The federal Department of Health and Human Services last year designated UAMS to lead bioterrorism preparedness training for Arkansas health care workers.
