Capture_REMM Update_Oct2015The Radiation Emergency Medical Management Team is proud to announce the first major redesign of its site since REMM was launched in 2007. The redesign includes a more modern banner, a new color palette and font style, and a new navigation system.

There are now six content groups on the new home page and an easy-to-use navigational menu has been added with sections for:
• Interactive Clinical Tools
• Diagnosis and Treatment
• Reference and Data
• Overview of REMM and
• Links to downloading the REMM app for various mobile devices
One of the most popular features, the Multimedia Library in carousel form, remains on the home page, with several categories of multimedia assets.

All prior URLs have been retained. Users who have previously visited REMM pages may need to refresh (reload) the page to see the new design.
