Emergency Preparedness Considerations for Health Centers

‐ Mar 16, 2018 4:00pm

Emergencies may take many shapes and sizes, from smaller localized situations that may impact one health center to larger multi-region disasters. Additionally, the scope of an emergency or disaster could greatly limit a health center's ability to respond at that moment in time through recovery and rebuilding efforts months later. This session will look at potential roles that community health centers may play in responding and recovering from emergencies and disasters affecting their communities. The discussion will focus on current policy issues and challenges relevant to this issue, as well as opportunities for facilitating response and lessons learned after recent disasters.
