    Washington – NIOSH has launched an initiative aimed at better protecting responders before, during and after a large disaster.

    The NIOSH Disaster Science Research Initiative to Enhance Responder Safety and Health will produce timely, scalable research that can be implemented at various phases of a disaster, according to the agency.

    Anyone interested in participating in the initiative – including both researchers and responders – should contact Margaret Kitt at ajy8@cdc.gov or Lisa Delaney at lkd2@cdc.gov.
