A printable flyer is available here:

A Point of Dispensing (POD) is a site for mass medication distribution in the event of a public health emergency (such as an infectious disease outbreak, natural disaster, or act of terrorism). A closed POD is closed to the public and is sponsored by an agency to distribute medication to its employees and their families, and potentially the patients they serve. At this workshop, attendees will learn about closed POD planning and be introduced to a template to assist planning efforts. There will be a discussion panel representing healthcare, a university, and private businesses that have created closed POD plans. Attendees will then work with their local public health representatives who will help answer questions and work with attendees on a closed POD scenario during the tabletop exercise. Lunch will be provided.

The event starts promptly at 8:30AM, registration will begin at 7:45 AM
