3rd Congressional Seminar:
Considerations for the 2012 Reauthorization of PAHPA

Overview

On March 1, 2012, the Center for Biosecurity of UPMC and the Biotechnology Industry Organization (BIO) convened Congressional staff, government officials, biosecurity organizations, and key stakeholders to discuss the importance of reauthorizing the Pandemic and All-Hazards Preparedness Act (PAHPA). With a standing room only audience of more than 100 attendees, the response to this issue was impressive, with significant numbers of both Congressional staff and members of the biosecurity community at large in attendance for a lively, informative meeting.
