Program Description:
This program, offered in collaboration with the UC Berkeley Center for Infectious Disease Preparedness (CIDP) will incorporate lessons learned from Hurricane Katrina and will address planning and outreach programs to protect the lives and health of segments of the community sometimes overlooked by the inter-governmental community (e.g., the elderly, disabled, persons with limited or no English). Please note: closed captioning available for this program.

At the conclusion of the presentation, the participants will be able to:

  1. List which populations have 'special needs' related to emergency preparedness and disaster response.
  2. Explain why people with special needs remain underserved and unprepared.
  3. Discuss an alternative approach to reaching and serving the preparedness, response, and recovery needs of our most vulnerable populations.

Who Should Attend:
National audience of state and local public health professionals and their partners (e.g., healthcare professionals, EMS personnel, law enforcement, media representatives, etc).

These projects are supported under a cooperative agreement from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Grant number U90/CCU224249-02. The contents of this program do not necessarily represent the official views of the CDC.
