Scott Fisher represented NACCHO and NACCHO’s membership during a recent National Health Security Strategy (NHSS) webinar hosted by the Assistant Secretary for Preparedness and Response. The webinar was the third in a series of five that focused on the new objectives included in the 2014 NHSS. The session focused on situational awareness related to the NHSS. NACCHO provided an overview of where locals stand in implementing the NHSS, the challenges they have faced in implementation, and the progress that has been made in national health security since the first iteration of the NHSS in 2009. NACCHO also summarized member comments about NHSS implementation and provided general suggestions for further the work in implementing the NHSS in the coming years.
