Global Health Security: Preparing a Nation for Emerging Threats
In an increasingly interconnected world, public health threats can emerge on the other side of the globe and arrive within a day on the doorstep of health departments, healthcare providers, schools, and more. Global health security preparedness issues such as protecting against infectious disease, the health effects of climate change and extreme weather, and cybersecurity threats to critical infrastructure, impact all levels of governmental public health and healthcare agencies. The Preparedness Summit is the premier national conference in the field of public health and healthcare preparedness and one of the only cross-disciplinary learning opportunities to address issues such as global health security.
The Preparedness Summit is the first and longest running national conference on public health preparedness. Since its beginning in 2006, the National Association of County and City Health Officials (NACCHO) has taken a leadership role in convening a wide array of partners to participate in the Summit; presenting new research findings, sharing tools and resources, and providing a variety of opportunities for attendees to learn how to implement model practices that enhance the nation’s capabilities to prepare for, respond to, and recover from disasters and other emergencies. This past year, this 4-day annual event, brought over 1,600 attendees to Atlanta, Georgia from nearly every state in the nation as well as several territories and countries, including China and Australia.
In 2015, the Summit returns to the Atlanta Marriott Marquis from April 14-17 and we hope you will join us!
The 2015 Preparedness Summit is the premier national conference in the field of public health and healthcare preparedness. The four-day annual event provides the ONLY cross-disciplinary learning for the preparedness community. Sponsors and exhibitors are a critical part of creating a successful environment for learning at the Preparedness Summit.
The largest event of its kind, the 2015 Preparedness Summit will attract nearly 1,800 attendees who work all levels of government (local, state, and federal), emergency management, volunteer organizations, and healthcare coalitions.
The 2015 Preparedness Summit delivers opportunities to connect with colleagues and share new research. Most importantly, attendees will learn how to implement model practices that enhance capabilities to prepare for, respond to, and recover from disasters and emergencies.
