Health centers play a dual role as both victims and responders when disasters strike. Despite the challenges for health centers and staff operating in disaster zones, they have shown they can be counted on to collaborate with federal and state authorities, and other providers and organizations to ensure the needs of the affected community are being met. Timely response strategies and consistent communications and messaging to stakeholders is not only essential, but expected. Attend this session to learn about the innovative approaches health centers are launching on the ground to network, communicate, and target the pressing needs of affected populations. Attendees will also learn tips from experts on complying with established emergency preparedness requirements for health care providers.
