  1. Disaster Preparedness. A Clinical Connection session in the Spring of 2002 will be devoted to disaster preparedness. Dr. Reid Adams has begun work on organizing the session, plans of which, although incomplete, will likely include a review of biologic and neurologic agents, management of acute and chronic stress disorders, emergency triage and possibly microbiologic mechanisms of toxins. Committee members were urged to submit content suggestions to Reid Adams.

  2. Neurology Clerkship Review. (Vern Juel) Dr. Juel gave an excellent presentation assessing the Neurology Clerkship.
