1 million expected to join in on Cutler Global Disaster Lecture

PITTSBURGH, Sept. 27 Recent problems in organizing and delivering aid to victims of hurricanes Katrina and Rita and the tsunami that devastated parts of Southeast Asia has made collecting and analyzing data on relief efforts a critical priority. On Thursday, Sept. 29, Eric Noji, M.D., M.P.H., senior policy advisor for emergency preparedness and response, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), will address an expected global audience of 1 million listeners about important contributions that epidemiologists can make to enhance the effectiveness of disaster relief planning and management. The lecture, originating at the University of Pittsburgh Graduate School of Public Health (GSPH), will be particularly salient for those responsible for determining appropriate relief supplies, equipment, personnel, staging and logistics needed to adequately respond to future calamities.

One of the world's leading experts in medical and health responses to natural, biological and technological disasters, Dr. Noji has spearheaded disaster relief efforts for the CDC and the World Health Organization (WHO). His lecture, "The Public Health Consequences of Disasters: Challenges for Public Health Action," will focus on the urgent need to collect better epidemiologic data in the aftermath of disasters. The lecture is being presented as GSPH's Second Annual John C. Cutler Global Health Lecture.

The annual lecture is offered in honor of John C. Cutler, M.D., M.P.H., professor emeritus in GSPH's department of behavioral and community health sciences, who passed away in 2003 at the age of 87. This year's Cutler Lecture will be held at 4 p.m, EDT, Thursday, Sept. 29, in GSPH's Parran Hall, Room G23-Public Health Auditorium, 130 DeSoto St., in the Oakland section of Pittsburgh.
