Among the participants will be about 30 of the University of Louisville&rsquo;s standardized patients, who act out various maladies during disaster drills. Program director Carrie Bohnert says the patients have been trained to simulate common earthquake-related injuries. Tue, 17 May 2011 14:01:51 +0000 3939 at http://weku.fm
