* Defining Moments in "MMWR" History: CDCs Response to Intentional Release of Anthrax -- 2001*

Dr Zaki - Anthrax On October 4, 2001, shortly after the September 11 attacks, the Palm Beach County Health Department, the Florida State Department of Health, and CDC reported a case of anthrax in a 63-year-old man from Florida. This case was first reported in "MMWR" and marked the beginning of a series of anthrax cases that resulted from intentional delivery of Bacillus anthracis spores sent through the mail.

"MMWR" is pleased to present the latest in its *Defining Moments in "MMWR" History* podcast series. In this new podcast, Dr. Sonja Rasmussen, Editor-in-Chief of "MMWR", interviews *Dr. Sherif Zaki, a pathologist who assisted with CDCs 2001 investigation and currently serves as Chief of CDCs Infectious Disease Pathology Branch. Dr. Zaki* shares his first-hand account of CDCs investigation and initial response to the anthrax attacks.
