HSP Fellows with Karen Zimmerman, U.S. Department of State, and Dr. Jason Rao, HSP Executive Director at the 4th National Coordination Conference on CBRN Safety and Security, 14-16 April 2019, in Baghdad, Iraq.
The HSP-trained cohort of 23 Health Security Fellows enthusiastically participated in the 4th National Coordination Conference on CBRN Safety & Security, 14-16 April 2019, in Baghdad. The Fellows’ 9 posters and 15 talks led the biosecurity track of CBRN at the conference. During a special session for the Fellows convened by HSP’s Executive Director, the cohort shared some of the many training activities they have conducted over the past month to advance health security at their institutions. They held a robust discussion on challenges and opportunities for reducing biological threats in Iraq. The Fellows also used the opportunity to discuss curriculum development as part of the next phase of their Fellowship.
