NWCPHP faculty Andy Stergachis, Randal Beaton, and Bryant Karras, along with other UW faculty, and in collaboration with Public Health - Seattle & King County (PHSKC), have published an article evaluating a mass dispensing exercise.

The article, "Evaluation of a mass dispensing exercise in a Cities Readiness Initiative setting," published in the American Journal of Health-System Pharmacy, discusses a model for community-based mass dispensing of antibiotics. The evaluation was part of a collaboration between the University of Washington and PHSKC, now in its fourth year, which provides technical assistance to PHSKC, gives students an opportunity to participate in public health activities, and is now extending into planning for antivirals and pandemic influenza.

The article is available in full text and PDF format at the Journal web site.
