Photo of participating players

Atlantic Storm portrayed the events following an international bioterrorist attack. This interactive presentation brings the event to life as you watch the news, learn the facts, read the briefings, and listen to excerpts of the players' discussions––from the ringside perspective of an observer, or from the hot seat perspective of a world leader facing a globabl outbreak of a deadly infectious disease.

Listen to world leaders debate the options.
Understand the challenges to biosecurity.
