Legal Preparedness Webinar Series: Ebola and Beyond: Legal Preparedness for Outbreaks
November 21 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, National Governors Association, and American Bar Association announced the launch of a four-part webinar series, “Preparedness and Response for Public Health Emergencies: Exploring the Role of Law,” which will explore legal preparedness for public health emergencies. The series aims to provide a more in depth look into the common legal challenges posed by public health emergencies.
The third webinar will examine challenges public health professionals and responders are facing during the Ebola response, as well as current legal provisions and concepts and how to apply them to future infectious disease emergency response planning. In addition, as studies show vulnerable populations are the most significantly impacted when disasters strike, this webinar will highlight protection of vulnerable populations for the next communicable disease outbreak of public health concern.
