Rural Health Association Looks at Bioterrorism Threat


Carter, Ray, THE JOURNAL RECORD


Health care professionals from rural and underserved areas of the state will examine the impact of bioterrorism on rural health during the annual conference of the Rural Health Association of Oklahoma today through Friday in Oklahoma City.

Co-sponsored by the Oklahoma Area Health Education Centers, more than 250 health care professionals are expected to attend the conference at the Oklahoma City Marriott, 3233 Northwest Expressway.

National and state speakers will address the conference theme, "Post-911-Impact on Rural Health." Speakers will include Dena Puskin, director of the federal Office for the Advancement of Telehealth, who will provide a national perspective on bioterrorism; Maj. Gen. Robert Alan Goodbary, director of Military Relations, Oklahoma State University, who will offer a state perspective on bioterrorism; Steven Kornguth, director, Biological and Chemical Countermeasures Program, University of Texas, who will discuss bioterrorism preparedness in rural areas; and Gary E. Jones, deputy regional director of the Region VI Federal Emergency Management Agency office, who will discuss bioterrorism preparedness in rural areas of the state.

Bernard Harris, the first African-American astronaut into space, will be a special guest.

Nursing incentives

Officials with the University of Phoenix have introduced a master of science in nursing degree program at the school's Oklahoma City and Norman campuses.

"The Oklahoma City VA Hospital will pay for 100 percent of tuition for our MSN students. Most other hospitals in the metro area will provide RNs some other type of tuition assistance," said Wally Hedgecock, vice president and director for the school's Oklahoma City and Norman campuses. "With a master's degree in nursing, registered nurses can move into education, infrastructure and community health, rather than just bedside care."

OSU

William J. Pettit has joined the staff at the Oklahoma State University Center for Health Sciences College of Osteopathic Medicine. Pettit also holds the title of assistant professor of family medicine.

Kenneth E. Miller has been named associate professor of anatomy and cell biology.
