Communities constantly face unexpected emergencies such as Zika virus outbreaks, floods, wildfires and chemical spills. Each event yields learning opportunities and resulting lessons that can strengthen communities for the next event. By identifying, responding to and recovering from these ongoing events, communities build the capacity and capabilities to withstand extraordinary, catastrophic events. Join us at the 2018 Summit to be part of the discussion on “Strengthening National Health Security: Mastering Ordinary Responses, Building Resilience for Extraordinary Events.”
