Public health officials across the country are scrambling to provide updated information on chemical and biological terrorism to medical workers.

That was the purpose of a training here in Tulsa Wednesday. Doctors, nurses and other health care workers listened to experts on how to recognize and treat illnesses resulting from nuclear, chemical or biological warfare. OSU Medical School Dean Dr Tom Allen has been speaking on the subject around the country recently. He says he's impressed with how hard the medical community is working to stay as informed as possible.

The workshop was held at the OSU Health Sciences Center in West Tulsa.
