Leveraging MCM Best Practices: Interactive Webinars – Multiple Dates/Times

October 24, 2016 - October 26, 2016

As a follow up to the regional Medical Countermeasure (MCM) Summits, the Office for the Assistant Secretary for Preparedness and Response (ASPR) plans to host be several interactive, poll-based webinars, hosted within the last week of October 2016. There events aim to evaluate the feasibility of various MCM best practices across the U.S. and to better understand the gaps and challenges encountered by MCM planners. The best practices to be discussed during these webinars were drawn from those touched on at the regional MCM Summits.

The webinar will be offered five times between Monday, October 24 and Wednesday, October 26. Each person should only participate once, at the time that works best for your schedule. The webinar will take place utilizing both teleconference and an online link through Poll Everywhere. Participants will need to be able to access both the teleconference line and the link in order to fully participate and interact during the webinar. Target participants include our local, tribal, territorial, and state representatives, though federal representatives are welcome as well.
