Real Stories of Emergency Preparedness in Children and Youth with Special Health Care Needs

This year the National Center on Birth Defects and Developmental Disabilities, Office of Public Health Preparedness and Response, American Academy of Pediatrics, and Family Voices have partnered to recognize the unique experiences of families and health providers during emergency situations. This partnership has resulted in a collection of family stories  that highlight emergency preparedness in children and youth with special health care needs. If your LHD is interested in working with CDC to create more family stories throughout the year please email Dr. Georgina Peacock using subject line “Emergency Preparedness for CYSHCN.”
