November 5, 2001

In response to intense community interest and numerous telephone calls inquiring about anthrax, three members of the biology faculty have scheduled an open forum to address the topic.

Titled "Anthrax in the Arsenal: Diffusing the Threat," the forum is slated to begin at 7 p.m., Thursday, Nov. 8 in E106 of the Sundquist Science Complex.

Panelists are APSU biology faculty members, Dr. Keith Belcher, Dr. Don Dailey and Dr. R.H. McCoy, along with Clarksville Postmaster Wayne Scott and U.S. Postal Inspector Waller; Lt. Mell James of the Montgomery County Emergency Medical Services; Maj. Samuel Jang, M.D., Fort Campbell, Ky, who is a medical expert on anthrax; and a representative from the Tennessee Department of Public Health.

Drawing from their respective areas of expertise, each panelist will talk briefly about anthrax. After discussing drugs used in the treatment of anthrax, panelists will answer audience questions.

The forum is free and open to the public. For more information, telephone McCoy, Dailey or Belcher at 7781.
