An Internet site sponsored by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) in cooperation with the University of Alabama Birmingham Center for Disaster Preparedness is expanding its reach to primary care physicians, offering them information on diagnosis and treatment of rare infections and on exposures to bioterrorist agents such as smallpox and anthrax.

The site currently offers continuing education credits to hospital-based clinicians. It is being expanded to increase access for 265 000 office-based family physicians, internists, pediatricians, and dermatologists.
