Dear Community Partner,
Your participation is requested in the evaluation of a pilot website designed for residents to access in the event of a bioterrorism attack. Health Departments in northern Illinois, parts of Indiana, and Wisconsin (known as the Chicago Metropolitan Statistical Area, or Chicago MSA) are charged with making sure individuals and families get the right medication in a fast amount of time if a bioterrorism attach were to occur.
These health departments in the Chicago MSA have been designing a pilot website that will allow individuals and families to enter important information to get the right medication for each member of their household, find out what their closest location is to pick up the medication, and have contact information for their closest health department.
From June 3-5, 2013, this pilot site will be active and accessible to the public to gain valuable feedback for how we can enhance this website during an actual bioterrorism event.
We need your help! Between June 3 – 5, please do the following:
1. Save June 3 – 5 on your calendar!
2. During June 3 – 5, access the pilot website (the link will be coming soon).
3. Follow the instructions as if you were getting meds for yourself and your family.
4. Take a brief 5 minute survey afterwards to let us know what you thought.
As we approach the date, we will send you additional information and reminders.
Thanks for your participation in this important preparedness initiative!
