Library Forum to Feature ‘Master Trainer’ for Avian-Flu Response

A Master Trainer for avian-influenza response and Pennsylvania College of Technology faculty member will share his expertise during a public forum at the Madigan Library later this month.

Steven R. Parker, an instructor of environmental technology certified by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security as a trainer, will be the featured speaker for “The Avian Flu and What It Means to You,” to be offered at 4 p.m. Thursday, April 24, in the Madigan Library Reading Loft on the college’s main campus in Williamsport.

The event is free and open to the public; light refreshments will be provided.

Parker will offer potential answers to some urgent, thought-provoking questions, such as:

  • How would avian influenza get to Williamsport?
  • What are the most likely ways that someone here could get the pandemic flu?
  • Has your place of work, business or local government completed pandemic contingency plans?
  • Do you know what you need to do to be prepared?
  • How will your work and home life be affected by a pandemic flu?
  • Are you in one of the three age populations in the highest danger of AI mortality?
  • Are you aware of the many different levels of personal-protection equipment, and which is best for you and your family?

For information about the forum or directions, call Matthew David, assistant director for library services, at (570) 327-4523.
