Washington, DC. (PRWEB) June 15, 2007

Richard E. Rowley, planning branch chief for the Federal Emergency Management Agency, has been named a lifetime member of Cambridge Who's Who (http://www. cambridgewhoswho. com/index. cfm? fuseaction=featuredmembers) for his work with FEMA (http://www. fema. gov/), an agency of the United States Department of Homeland Security (http://www. dhs. gov/) that coordinates the response to disasters which overwhelm the resources of local and state authorities. Inclusion in Cambridge Who's Who Registry is an accomplishment in itself and recognition as an accomplished professional is a rare opportunity. Cambridge Who's Who is committed to providing professional networking services and recognizing the achievements of professionals worldwide.

Rowley, an authority on dealing with disabilities and ensuring that critical information is disseminated to the proper people, received an associate of arts in science from Montgomery County Community College in 2006. A former local disaster assistance employee for FEMA, Rowley praised U. S. Representative Allyson Y. Schwartz, who represents the 13th Congressional District of Pennsylvania, after she proposed the Disaster Assistance Employment and Reemployment Rights Act legislation. Rowley said, "It is critical for the United States to have a system of well-trained, well-qualified individuals ready and able to assist in the event of disaster, whether it's natural or man-made. Congresswoman Schwartz is leading an important step forward to make certain that Disaster Assistance Employees are covered with reemployment protections."

FEMA's Mission
The prime mission of FEMA is to lessen the loss of life and property and protect the country from natural disasters, terrorism and man-made disasters by directing and sustaining the United States in a wide-ranging emergency management system of preparedness, protection, response and recovery.

Recent News about FEMA
FEMA held a National Conference on Community Preparedness entitled 'Partnerships and Collaboration through Citizen Corps' on June 11, 2007. David Paulison, Administrator for the Federal Emergency Management Agency spoke. He and the agency are urging the public to become part of local planning, training and exercising so that they will know what to do when a real emergency occurs.

For more information on volunteering with an agency involved in disaster response and recovery, visit the National Voluntary Organizations Active in Disaster (http://www. nvoad. org), Citizen Corps (http://www. citizencorps. gov) and the Red Cross (http://www. redcross. org).

Protecting Yourself and Loved Ones During a Disaster
Being prepared is critical. You should be ready to take personal action even before a storm is forecast. FEMA strongly advises that the public has enough provisions for at least 72 hours after a storm strikes. The most important supplies to have on hand include food, water and a battery-powered radio. In the event that you are asked to evacuate, be sure to bring copies of important papers including checkbooks, driver's licenses, credit card information, birth certificates, social security cards and other forms and documents to establish ownership and identity. You should also be aware of local evacuation routes and the locations of nearby shelters. And, be sure to set up a plan for communicating with loved ones during and after the emergency.

Rockville, MD (PRWEB) March 30, 2010

CME Outfitters, LLC, an accredited provider of multidisciplinary continuing education, announces that it will present a satellite symposium titled "Advances in the Treatment of Schizophrenia: New Approaches" on June 9, 2010, at the 2010 International College of Neuro-Psychopharmacology (CINP) Congress, which is being held in Hong Kong this year. This symposium is supported by an educational grant from Dainippon Sumitomo Pharma America, Inc. and will feature presentations by W. Wolfgang Fleischhacker, MD, Managing Director and Professor in the Department of Psychiatry and Psychotherapy at Medical University Innsbruck in Innsbruck, Austria; Donald C. Goff, MD, Professor of Psychiatry at Harvard Medical School and Director of the Schizophrenia Program at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston, Massachusetts, and Philip D. Harvey, PhD, Professor of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at Emory University School of Medicine in Atlanta, Georgia. Content from this symposium will be used to create a one-hour webcast certified to offer credit for physicians, nurses, psychologists, social workers, case managers, and pharmacists.

Presenting an international symposium is nothing new for CME Outfitters. In addition to creating and delivering award-winning CME in the United States, CME Outfitters has been steadily amassing experience in the global medical education arena. The global CME environment is a study in transformation, but current indicators suggest that emerging CME accrediting bodies and guidelines will closely mirror those of the United States, making CMEO’s domestic expertise especially relevant in the international arena. Specifically, CME Outfitters has experience working in the following international locations: Australia, Canada, Chile, Hong Kong, Mexico and Central America, Taiwan, and Turkey.

CME Outfitters' experiences have provided first-hand perspective on the complexities and opportunities inherent in the development and delivery of international medical education. CME Outfitters staff have creatively adapted and sometimes improvised to handle the following challenges:

  • Collaborating with international key opinion leaders (KOLs)
  • Language and cultural barriers
  • Travel, meeting planning, and related logistics
  • Partnering with international professional societies and accrediting bodies
  • International direct marketing and publicity
  • Technology issues related to varying levels of online access by international partners and participants
  • Shipping, mailing, and customs requirements
  • Access problems due to time zone differences
  • Culturally sensitive translation services

CME Outfitters is committed to strengthening its already solid competency in the international CME arena, and is well-positioned to deliver expert accreditation, educational, logistical, and production services in this exciting and dynamic area.
