Register for the 2018 Preparedness Summit to attend a plenary session featuring federal leaders from ASPR, FEMA, CDC and Homeland Security discuss topics such as, Strengthening Health Security: Visions for a Prepared and Resilient Nation.
New leadership within federal agencies responsible for the nation’s public health and healthcare preparedness enterprise will inevitably bring change and a new vision for preparing a nation that is responsive to and resilient in the face of disasters and other public health emergencies, including deliberate threats from both state and non-state actors.
From their first day, our new leaders have been tested as never before during the unprecedented events of the past year including a series of devastating hurricanes and wildfires, mass casualty and fatality incidents resulting from active shooter, mudslide, and train disasters, and a looming influenza virus outside our domestic boarders.
Join federal leaders from ASPR, FEMA, CDC and Homeland Security as they share their experiences leading and responding to these events, describe their goals and expectations for strengthening the nation’s health security in the future, and offer suggestions for how to engage state, local, tribal, and territorial partners.
