- Closed POD Workbook Creation
- Closed POD Training Sessions
Approximately 50 Closed POD volunteers trained
In the fall of 2013 the Jackson County (Mo.) Health Department hired Bio-Defense Network to modify the Closed POD Workbook it had created for St. Louis County Department of Health, and to conduct training for Closed POD Managers and Dispensers. Bio-Defense Network delivered the new workbooks and trained approximately 50 Closed POD volunteers in October 2013.
Missouri law requires that in order to dispense any medications, a person must either be a licensed medical professional, or, in the event of an emergency, be a Closed POD dispenser who has received special training as approved by the State of Missouri. Both Harlan Dolgin and David Reddick of Bio-Defense Network are authorized by the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services to train Closed POD dispensers.
