This article outlines a simulation conducted as part of a federal grant award administered through the Center for Biological Defense at the University of South Florida. The disease entity simulated was an attack of anthrax introduced into the Central Florida region. The spread, effects, and eventual control of the disease entity are highlighted. © 2008 Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, Inc.
