In a public health emergency, such as a disease outbreak or bioterrorism, the residents of our communities will need access to medications as quickly as possible. The San Francisco Health Department is responsible with meeting this critical need by establishing locations throughout the city, called Point-of-Dispensing (POD) sites.
The Dept. of Public Health cannot do this alone – they need our help!
Join us on the morning of Friday, March 31st, and learn how you can support the needs of the vulnerable during a public health emergency. This training, provided by the Dept. of Public Health’s Emergency Preparedness & Response Branch, will teach you how to provide life-saving medication to the public.
Training Goal: To provide anyone who may staff a Point-of-Dispensing (POD) site with the skills needed to dispense medications during a large-scale public health emergency.
