NACCHO, in coordination with the Preparedness Summit Planning Committee, recently invited your agency to contribute to the advancement of our national health security by submitting an abstract for the 2019 Preparedness Summit (March 26-29, 2019 in St. Louis, Mo.). We have extended the abstract submission deadline to Friday, Oct. 12, 11:59 p.m., ET, to encourage you to participate in the longest running national conference on public health preparedness.
Now more than ever, the public health preparedness community must come together to discover new and creative solutions to address evolving threats like pandemic diseases, the opioid crisis, active shooter emergencies, and security threats.
Submit an abstract to join the distinguished list of presenters at the country’s premier conference for Public Health Preparedness, convening nearly 2,000 attendees representing national and international organizations at the local, state, and federal level. Share your agency’s best practices and hard-earned knowledge with your colleagues. The year’s theme is “Preparedness Summit 2019: The Evolving Threat Environment,” focusing on the following topics:
- The catastrophic nature of the evolving threat environment
- Strengthening partnerships with emergency management, healthcare and nontraditional sectors
- Finding new and creative solutions to address gaps between industries
