Arlington, VA (PRWEB) June 18, 2012
National Defense Industrial Association (NDIA) has announced that registration is open for the 2012 Biosurveillance Conference, set for August 27-28 at the Washington Court Hotel on Capitol Hill.
The upcoming conference will feature distinguished speakers and subject matter experts to address the current concerns with our nation’s bio-preparedness through the theme: “Creating a National Biosurveillance Strategy: Addressing the Shortfalls and Filling the Gaps.”
With new developments and advancements in biotechnology, the range of biological threats is becoming infinite. Failed attempts to develop an effective national biosurveillance strategy have left the U.S., and its allies, unprepared in a particularly dangerous time.
The biosurveillance community must pull together and take proactive measures to achieve a national biosurveillance strategy, in order to increase our preparedness for and responsiveness to increasing threats.
“The NDIA Biosurveillance Conference will provide a great opportunity to address the many known shortfalls and inadequacies, in the biosurveillance community, preventing us from developing, implementing, and maintaining a national biosurveillance strategy,” says Richard Stouder, Director, Technology Development and Deployment, Global Security Directorate, Oak Ridge National Laboratory. “Attendees will be provided the opportunity to share ideas and explore the vital next steps to achieve the overall goal of standardizing and integrating the biosurveillance community.”
Conference attendees will hear from two of the most well-known and highly respected leaders in the biosurveillance community in the following keynote speeches:
