Answers on Anthrax
Crowd Jams Special Grand Rounds on Bioterror
By Rich McManus
You would have thought that Katie Couric came back to Masur
Auditorium by the number of NIH'ers who jammed the hall Oct. 31
for a special edition of Clinical Center Grand Rounds on the topic of
bioterrorism; even guest speaker Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of
NIAID, admitted afterward he was stunned by the audience's size.
But that's because with 17 documented cases of anthrax up to that
date, including the death that day of an unusually suspicious case,
everyone was passionately interested in what NIH had to make of
the emerging public health crisis.
