    As a coordinator for this workshop, I want to thank Mr. Roszak and Ms. Yates for their informative and insightful presentation. The experience that they were both able to share with us, along with the timely information regarding Whole Community Inclusion (especially regarding the legal perspective) were of great benefit to our public health preparedness planners and partners who were present. Thank you, NACCHO for your continued effort to share with and assist Local Health Departments in efforts like our workshop!
