The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation's Response to Emergencies

September 11th, Bioterrorism, and Natural Disasters

This chapter of the Anthology examines how the Foundation has responded to emergencies that take lives and threaten the public’s health.

The most traumatic event was the terrorist attacks of September 11th, but natural disasters (such as earthquakes and hurricanes) and bioterrorism (for example, the 2001 anthrax attacks) are situations that also require an emergency response. Isaacs, co-editor of The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Anthology, explores all three situations.
