Bioterrorism: The Texas Medical Association asserts the importance of state level responsibility for public health preparedness, in ensuring an infrastructure capable of protecting the public health in the event of a terrorist strike, bioterrorist attack, or even natural disaster. TMA recommends appointment of a local health authority or a physician with public health experience and a strong background in infectious disease or bioterrorism to serve as the public health and medical operations director for any bioterrorism emergencies (CPH Rep. 3-I-01; amended CSPH Rep. 3-A-12).
