Webinar: Zika Preparedness: Lessons for the US Public Health System
May 17, 2016 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Region X NWPHTC Hot Topics in Practice Webinar: Zika Preparedness: Lessons for the US Public Health System
Although Zika virus is not an endemic threat in the Pacific Northwest, its presence shines a light on the vulnerabilities of public health prevention and response systems; many communities affected by Zika are under-resourced to respond.
In the May session of Hot Topics in Practice, state and local public health leaders from Washington State discuss what Zika preparedness means for the region. Presenters will review the latest science and prevention guidance, and use the response to Zika as an example of foundational public health services-services that people rely on government to provide, that are needed everywhere in order to be effective anywhere.
Register today to learn about sustainable approaches for public health and emergency preparedness.
