May 3 '07: In Terre Haute, Indiana, local city, medical, hospital and state officials have partnered to underwrite and film a pandemic preparedness video which will be put into DVD format for circulation throughout the state, the Tribune Star reported. Officials told the Star that after several discussions, a pandemic preparedness film would be the best way to reach a large audience.
Providing money for the film is the Union Hospital's Richard G. Lugar Center for Rural Health, the Hamilton Center, and the Indiana State Department of Health.The group underwriting the video told the Star that residents of the state were used to preparing for dangerous weather such as tornadoes, so pandemic preparedness would be relatively easy to catch on. "One of the experts featured in the video is Indiana State Health Commissioner, Dr. Judy Monroe, who says health professionals are concerned" because of the spread and causes of pandemic flu.
