AMA seeks to coordinate disaster relief
NEWS IN BRIEF — Posted July 11, 2005
Last year's tsunami in Southeast Asia and other international and domestic disasters are prompting the American Medical Association, over the next six months, to develop a plan to work with other organizations in future disasters.
The AMA also will create a plan to help coordinate domestic and international donations and physician resources.
Delegates at the AMA Annual Meeting in June directed the Board of Trustees to present the plan at the Association's Interim Meeting in November.
