health professionals are faced with the challenge of finding
ways to maintain the progress made towards improving public
health while at the same time addressing new, and sometimes
re-emerging, public health threats including acts of bioterrorism.
2002, the health department receives funding specifically for improving disease surveillance, planning
for public health-related emergencies, and coordinating response
with local, state and national emergency planners.
