New Training Center for Bioterrorism and Disaster Response at New York Medical College

New York Medical College in Valhalla recently opened their new Center for Excellence on June 8 with a training program for medical responders. With a $500,000 initial grant from Empire State development, the medical center will develop an “austere medicine” facility for first responders to simulate situations of accidents, active shooters, and more. The Center for Disaster Medicine at the college has previously partnered with the U.S. Department of Defense, and they hope that the Center for Excellence will help to increase funding for those programs.
