Briefly Noted - 2011 State-by-State Update on Laboratory Capabilities and Response Readiness Planning

So the title may be longer than the post...and that's only half in-jest. I don't have a whole lot to say on this one. I picked up the 2010 version of this report at the 2011 Public Health Preparedness Summit (note - the 2012 Summit is open now, I have my reservations made, do you?) and was impressed with the amount of information the authors were able to stuff into the relatively small document. Remember, I am used to things that come out of DHS so small is relative.

The report includes great information on national preparedness, state-by-state reporting, and some appendices that explain how the different metrics were pulled together. It can be accessed from the CDC Office of Public Health Preparedness and Response website. The write up from the site is below:
